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.

The tires on this Fiat are pirelli nero zero. All four are very choppy and badly worn. They were rotated at 5,000 miles. The road noise is so loud it overpowers the factory rumbling of the flow through exhaust system. The tires affect the handling as I get vibrations and the car darts from side to side on uneven road surfaces.

Had to replace the oem tires on my 2013 Fiat 500 @ 5000 mi because of sidewall bulge, . tire size is 185 55 15 Firestone firehawk GT. No letters after GT, Firestone store told me its a road hazard problem. I looked on the web for Fiat tire problems, others are having same problem but seems to only be cars with I believe there is a problem, none of my 5 other cars, which go the same places have a tire problem. I just tried to call in to vsh hotline and got treated like an idiot. I've been a mechanic for over 30 years, I may have some insight of what is normal tire performance.
