Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The second tire in four weeks had a tread seperation. The first was found at sears automotive when I took vehicle back due to tire vibration. They pro-rated the tire and replaced it. Four weeks later, another tire seperated at 70 mph on the interstate causing some body damage to the left rear of the vehicle. I now have a third tire vibrating at 35 mph and at 70 mph. This cannot be safe. I am meticulous about maintaining my tire pressrue at the manuf. Suggested pressure.

Initially experienced tread seperation during annual check in Oct 99. Replaced tire and put trailer in storage. In July when taking the trailer out of storage, the "new" tire tread just peeled off. I towed the unit to the trailer dealer, rv traders, for correction. The dealer upon further inspection noted that the remaing oem tires (3), with approx 10,000 miles, were also starting to seperate. I was about to go on vacation, so had to install (4) new tires (Goodyear). Rv traders in contact with the tire manufacturer agreed to re-imburse me at $50 per tire after I sent a letter to the manu describiong the circumstances. This I did on July 21, 2000. I have yet to hear from the manufacturer in chelsea, MA.( dot number: Cfkcmt2389 tire size: ST205/75R1 )
