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.

We were informed that our toyo open country H/T 111S OWL 265/70R16 were dry rotted. We purchased these tires approx 2 years ago and the vehicle was stored in closed garage virtually every night. Only 30,000 miles were put on the tires from point of purchase to point of observation by tire store which means dry rotting happened at some point prior to 30K miles. It was recommended to us that this could be a potentially dangerous situation for me and my family so we elected to purchase new tires immediately.

All tires or cupping, tires have been serviced from day one by Firestone dealer. Out side company checked front end and allignment and all was ok.

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,899 miles
While traveling on a highway at approximately 70 mph there was a loud pop sound from the front right of the vehicle that sounded like a rock hitting the inside of the fender. We continued to travel another mile or so, not realizing that our tire had just "popped". the tire proceeded to go flat.
