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.

I have had 3 2002 Ford oem wheel rims develope stress cracks and leak air from the tires. This has happend to 3 of the 5 rims that I got on my 2002 E150 van. The last incident was July 3rd, 2005, but the first 2 times were earlier this year. All the cracks are in the center portion of the of the rim between the where the tire bead mounts. 1 is near the wield area for the hub portion but the other 2 are not. I have 135,000 miles on the van. Please contact me by email or cell phone. I will be out of town from the 13th to the 17th, if you have any questions. Thanks
