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.

B.F.goodrich, P275/60R17; both inside tires are worn out. It feels like vehicle is out of line. Consumer has to constantly keep steering wheel straight. *akconsumer states that there is a conflict between the two companies.(Ford & B. F.) in which they're blaming each other, but in this case the problem is the tires because the alignment has been checked and there was no problem there. Please refer to summary.

The right rear steeltex tire on my F-250 blew out while traveling 65mph on the highway. The tires had been rotated and had 19,000 miles on them. I am extremely concerned about the other steeltex tires still on my truck and am not comfortable with any Firestone tires on my truck. (tiresize: LT265/75R1)

Sidewall is flaking apart and letters are coming off. Also, the tread is wearing very quickly. I have less than 1800 miles and the tread is already 1/2 worn in some spots. I tried more tire pressure, but the tread and the sidewall still flakes apart. (dot number: None found tiresize: 265/75R16)
