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.

2004 Dodge Ram 1500. Consumer states problem with vehicle tires the consumer purchased a set of cooper discoverer tires, only to experience tread separation on three different occasions. The consumer stated as he was driving, he felt the front end of the vehicle shimmy and then there was a loud noise. He was able to pull over and when he exited the vehicle, he discovered the left front tire had shredded, but it was still holding air. The last tread separation caused $2000 in damage to the front of the vehicle.

Summary: Goodyear Wrangler hp P275/60R20 within the 50,000 miles that are on my 2004 Dodge ran 1500 quad cab truck I have gone threw 2 sets of these tires they have a major early wear problem for starters. But worst of all around 25,000 miles the tread separates on the 1st set the tread didn't come all the way off the truck just bounced me into the ditch the 1st one that went was in the front and I was on the highway. When it happens in that case the truck becomes uncontrollable. After I replaced it happened to 2 more shortly after. Now I am on the 2nd set they have 25,881 miles on them yes that's it and the tread completely came off of 1 and another is about to do the same. They also have a major problem with early wear. The thing that really gets me is when I called Goodyear the 1st time I was told my warranty was up after a year no ifs ands or buts about they wouldn't do anything about it. The same thing was said to me today when I called about the second set. Apparently jodi from Goodyear Corp. Office didn't know I was at a garage location earlier and found to have a 50,000 mile warranty. O_O_O_O_O I'm sorry Mr. Wolfe that tire does have a 50,000 mile warranty. I can drive anything with a motor and anything that drives without a motor when they go on the highway trust me there is nothing you can do about it. My father also bought the same truck as me with the 20 in wheels and is having the same problem. It is just a matter of time before people start dyeing on the highways just like Firestone and Goodyear wont do anything for those of us who have them. God bless.
