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.

Tread separation. No punctures, no flats, no strikes to tire. About 30 miles North of brady tx. Temp about 80F, light rain. Road was hard packed gravel under contruction. Heard noise from rear of turck. Slowed down but continued droving. A minute later a loud noise and the right rear tire was flat. Did not swerve off road as our speed was only 30mph. Pulled off road onto soft ground. Changed to spare. Replaced tire at del rio tx Goodyear store on 6 July 2001. No signs of a nail or other puncture. No holes in sidewall. Tread was completely separated from what looked like an inner tube. The side wall was gone due to the rim and the road after the loud noise. The Goodyear dealer had no explanation for the failure. I am concerned that there may be a defect in either the tires or the truck, and this could happen again. I still have 4 original tires on the truck.

Was driving in newmexico on hot sumer day. Tire failed. The tread and sidewall shreaded. Firestone claimed it was not their fault! finally replaced the tire at a discount price of $70. There was no reason for this tire to have failed. Had been driven the day before about 800 miles over hot highway. This was a brand new tire on a new vehicle. So sign of a hole or damage could be found. However tire was in bad shape.( dot number: Tire size: P265 70R16 )
