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.

I was traveling on highway 2 in Washington state, at 60 mph when my Ford F150 front passenger tire blew out causing the truck to pull toward the ditch. No one was hurt. I changed my tire and contacted the tire company where the warranty would be honored. I had 30,000 miles on a 2 year old truck. I thought something would be done about it but nothing was. I am concern about my remaining tires I have on my truck.

Purchased a new 2012 F150 with Michelin ltx A/T2 tires 12000 miles and I noticed that they were dry rot between the tread lugs took back to dealer had them replaced now around 12000 mi. Later have same problem dry rot cracking between lugs and on sidewall I believe this tire has a problem and Michelin needs to recall them before some innocent person is injured or killed. How many times are we going to replace something defective with something defective.

F-150 8-cyl

  • 2,000 miles
On May 23, 2012 we purchased a new Ford F-150 from beechmont Ford in cincinnati and took title in the state of Kentucky. The truck was fitted with 4 pirelli scorpion tires. Within the first 3000 miles we had 3 sidewall tire failures. With the first side wall failure we thought it was just bad luck and had to buy another matching tire for over $200. We subsequently had 2 more sidewall failures and were forced to buy a full set of new tires at a cost of over $1300 pirelli has consistently denied and blame and refused any form of reimbursement. When my wife returned the first tire to beechmont Ford, she was approached by another customer who was there with a pirelli new sidewall tire failure. A month or so later, I was having the oil changed on the truck and I was telling the oil crew about the pirelli tire nightmare and the guy in the "pit? asked if the tires were ?pirelli scorpion tires? and I said yes, why? he responded "a lady was just in here with the same sidewall flat tire on a new Cadillac. Pirelli consistently denies any knowledge of a problem and they did not bother to ask for a lot number. I figure I am out 2 roadside flat tires, $1300 in new tires on a new truck that was not off/road, accidental discoveries of the same issue with the same tire from other owners and yet, pirelli denies all. Hopefully, others may be spared this expense and inconvenience and risk and pirelli is forced to stand behind their products and their warranty.
