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 consumer was driving at highway speed, and attempted to make a turn and it felt as though the right rear tire was flat. The mechanic put the car on the lift, and discovered the rim was broken and the tire fell off.

While getting my van serviced at my local pep boys the tech noticed my rear tires and said they appeared to be seperating. I took the van to the Firestone dealer here and ask for a inspection. I was told that they were not seperating. He offererd to sell me 4 shocks for $300 and 2 new tires (but the old ones were not bad so he says) for $300 the van only has 19400 mile on it ! where can I go to get these tire inspected? I live in las vegas nv. (tiresize: 225/75R16)( dot number: Tire size: 225/75R16 )
