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.

Ram 2500

  • 93,000 miles
On sat. 11/21/15 I was driving East on I-80 at martis valley in truckee, ca. Suddenly, I felt a vibration in the front end. As I slowed to merge into the right lane, so that I could pull over, the right front tire blows to pieces, my truck lunges into the right lane, narrowly missing a Subaru, and I finally get safely pulled over. The tires, bfg KO2 all terrain, are brand new, less than 1000 miles on them. Cost me $2200, bought them 2 weeks earlier from discount tire in reno, nv. Upon further investigation into bfg tires, I have found over 150 complaints, just in the past six mos., of either the same blowout that happened to me, or the tread of the tire peeling off completely. Some people have had significant property damage compared to the damage that my truck endured. This may have something to do with the tires being on 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, as the cycle of "most" of the complaints are people that drive these vehicles. Bfg then tells the consumer that they need the tire to determine why the tire failed. Then after they get the tire they deny the consumers claim, and tell them that the tire failed because of something the consumer had done, I.e. low tire pressure, struck something, ect... seems to be the same story over and over. I have new tires on order, some nitto's. never tried them, but I have a lot of buddies that run them. I hope that this complaint will be investigated before somebody causes a bad accident. I have the shredded tire that I was hoping to send to you guys to see if you could determine the cause of the blowout. Thank you
