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.

While traveling on highway at 70 mph we had a sidewall blow out on the right rear tire. Firestone FR680 P215/70R15 tires were installed on April 29, 2003 and had less than 5,000 miles at time of blow out. Checked tire pressure previous Saturday and all were ok. Also checked tire pressure on other 3 tires after blow out and all were ok. The incident occurred at 10:00 P.M. while driving on I-75 North down a 4% grade. Fortunately we didn't have an accident. We had our four kids in the car ages 10 and under. Needless to say we don't feel very safe driving on these tires.

Driving South on I-5, at approx 70mph, rear tires went flat. First, rear passenger tire blew to shreds and sidewall separated. Car started to fishtail and rear, driver side, tire went flat, probably rolled off of the rim. Dealership looked at tires and confirmed that tire is defective, damage not caused by road hazard. Have not yet submitted problem to Firestone. In process of filing claim. Currently have possession of all four tires. Replaced all original tires 'cause wife is afraid to drive van.
