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.

Sidewall separated completely on one tire and the tread is separating from the body if another tire. Both tires are the same make and model. Dean mud terrain SXT M+S LT245/75-R16 dot on tire with sidewall separation UP11-dnw-0108 dot on tire with tread lug separation UP11-dnw-0108 failures occurred at the same time on a 2004 Ford E350 econoline. During freeway operation, operator felt a rumble and slowed and pulled over to then notice the sidewall had separated. He then also noticed the rear. Changed tires to a different brand and contacted cooper the parent company of dean to see if there was a recall. No recall was stated under their company. Four of the tires on the van are under warranty and they directed me to contact a local distributor to change them. Still have the tires and have yet to change them out.

I was a passenger in a 15 passenger van coming to Transport me from the airport. It was a white Ford club wagon (year unknown). We were going at 70 miles per hour on cruise control. The rear tire blew out and we began to swerve and then started to do 360 degree turns and then hit a guardrail and flipped 1.5 times. One person was killed and several more were injured severely. The front passenger had to have the jaws of life to remove her from the vehicle.

The tire was under sized. The consumer stated the rear axle was over weight by 400 pounds. The consumer was concerned that the rv exceeds the manufacturers specifications. (Michelin load range E tires.)
