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.

Stock tires failed at 18K. Replaced all four tires and rims since it damaged one of the wheels during a blowout.

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 with aluminum wheels. Both left side tires developed leaks due to cracks in the factory wheels. Had the leaks been on the right side I may not have noticed them going down and it could have been rather dangerous. When checking for replacement rims I was told at two large junk yards that Dodge had a problem with the aluminum rims and would do nothing about it. I have both rims with cracks. I currently have two steel rims on and two aluminum. I am uncertain about leaving the two aluminum rims on as I am not sure if they will also fail.

Ram 2500 8-cyl

While traveling at 50 the right front tire slightly touched the gravel on an uneven parkway, and caused the driver to lose control of vehicle, the vehicle flipped and crashed. Upon impact, the air bags failed to deploy. The passenger was killed. When the tire left the road the consumer turned the wheel back to the left to get the vehicle back onto the road. The vehicle fishtailed in the rear and collided head on into the concrete culvert, flipped end over, and rolled upside down into a ditch. Neither air bag deployed. The consumer was told the size of the wheels should be redesigned due to the chassis. (the change of the center gravity caused the vehicle to be unstable)
