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.

Tires have stress cracks about 1-inch from where the tire is mounted to the rim and it goes all the way around my tires. Scared that the tire may be defected.

Tread separation, Goodyear F1 supercar tires. 4 failures out of 5 tires at approx 15,000 miles. These are top of the line tires 245/45zr20. Oe on Dodge srt 8 Chargers and Chrysler 300 srt 8 cars. My car has not been aggressively driven. Product reports at tire rack and other feedback locations indicate this problem is very common. Considering that these tires are placed on high performance vehicles this type of failure is extremely dangerous. I have replaced the tires and kept two of them that exhibit this problem. The outer edge of the tire becomes slick while retaining significant tread depth elsewhere. The separation occurs on the inside edge. Goodyear does not honor warranty claims stating poor alignment or insufficient tread depth. Chrysler Corp dealers have not found alignment problems and other brands of tires do not exhibit excessive instances of outer edge wear or tread separations as a typical condition when used as replacement tires on the same vehicle.

Wanli S-1098 tire. 265/35R22 102V XL dot 4hsa (3205) please note; your tire selection did not have this brand identified. Inside side walls cracking with > 60% tread life. 22months put on new 2006 Dodge daytona-Charger by dealership. All 4 tires with cracking. One however, so many cracks that dealer service manager advised to not drive car due to severe safety hazard of potential tire rupture. All 4 tires recommended to be replaced. But the dealer says they won't honor the "manufacturers" warranty. One tire company indicated a prior recall of wanli brand tires, yet, I could not find a recall for this tire on this site. Was there an actual re-call on wanli performance tires for sidewall defects" I found, on the internet, that this tire, wanli S-1098, has a "100 percent free replacement" warranty for the life of the tire. However, there are no dealers in my area that deal with wanli anymore, presumably due to "poor quality", "too many problems" and an alleged recall per my local les schwab tire store. Can you let me know of any recalls on the wanli brand tire" since the tire was installed by the dealer prior to sale( to encourage sale) does that make the auto dealership the tire dealer and should they honor the warranty?

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger with 47,000 miles on it. When I went to my mechanic to have the tires rotated (Goodyear), they advised me that the steering tie rod (rt side) was so badly worn they did not even want me to drive it home ( I have saved the part). It is a sealed unit and should not need any lubrication other than what was initially designed into the part. Obviously if one loses steering ability at speed the consequences could be significant. Interestingly, the mechanic told me that I got the last one available in the milwaukee area. It makes me wonder if all the others were used for a similar replacement defect and/or it is being redesigned.

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger R/T with less than 12,000 miles. In March of 2006, I had a blow-out of the front passenger side tire after bumping a curb. The impact was not that great and no damage was done to the car, but the tire was destroyed. On 8/25/2006, the rear passenger tire went flat for no apparent reason. I have it in for service today to determine the issue. My concern is that two tires have failed at under 12,000 miles.
