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.

Tire tread separation on front drive side tire. I was able to catch in time and had tire replaced but would like company to reimburse me because this brand of tire was recalled last year for the same reason but did not include the P265/70R17. The brand of tire is capital precision trac II, the tire shop that replace the tire told me I was lucky that it did not blow on the highway.

I own a 2008 Ford F-150 lariat which is lightly used and never carries a load.the tires on my truck dry rotted by 5/19/11 and had to be replaced. Mileage was 18369, cost to me was $362. Now the new tires have done the same thing. I do not haul cargo or drive at excessive speeds. My current mileage is 31944 which means this set lasted just over two years and 13575 miles. I am concerned about the issue of a blowout and losing control of the truck on the highway due to the rollovers with pickup trucks. I just watched an episode of motorweek that stressed the importance of keeping the steel belts out of the elements or they will fail badly and these tires are cracked in the tread where there is little to keep the steel covered. I don't know if there is a problem with this tire, but I'm not getting any service life out of a very expensive tire. It seems bf goodrich and Ford think this is my problem, goodrich blames ozone for the problem, nobody will take responsibility. I now own a truck that I cannot in good conscience ride my grandchildren in. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) general tire "ameritrac TR". design failure. Tire is prone to tiny punctures on the sidewall about one inch (1") below the tread. Two tires on my 2008 F-150 suffered the same damage. Both punctures were about at the same location, the first at about 2,000 miles. The second at about 20,500 miles. The tires were on different wheel positions on the vehicle when punctures occurred. With damage on sidewalls, both tires were irreparable. Tires came on new vehicle on 17 inch rims. VIN#[xxx], I am replacing all tires with Goodyear mtr w/kevlar. Vehicle was on routine use. It was driven on roads, not off-road. It was driven on dirt roads. Both failures became apparent while vehicle operated on pavement.

I bought a new Ford F 150 4X4 pickup 5/1/08 and have had 2 tires blow out. 1 turning around in a forest service camp ground and 1 on the freeway at 75 mph. These tires have not been abused or mistreated in any way. The worst use they have seen is 20 miles at 35 mph on an improved county gravel road.. I feel Ford Motor Company made an error putting passenger rated tires on a light truck. Especially a four wheel drive. Out of safety concern, and just plain got tired of buying replacements, I've had to replace all 5 tires with lt tires rated for pickup use at a cost of $800. I would like to see some help in recovering my costs to get a tire I feel should have been on this vehicle in the first place. These tires are hankook P235 75 R17.

Optional tires for Ford F-150S, LT275/65rx18, sold as an upgrade by dealers, are safety hazards in wet weather. Their holding ability is limited and in two wheel drive on rain slick street any power applied for climbing hills, coming out of turns, or entering fwys can result in rear end drift and skidding. Exceptional driver care must be exercised to avoid this happening. These tires should be sold as after market tires to address only specific requirements.
