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.

On July 4, 2016 my girlfriend and I were traveling home, about an hour and half into our trip we noticed a weird vibration, we decided to get off onto sate rd 429, we slowed way down looking for a place to pull over, when the back passenger tire tread completely separated from the tire. Once we pulled over we noticed the damage the separated tire tread did to the truck body. I have calculated the total mileage of 25196 on the tires, since I bought the truck from kisselback Ford in St. Cloud Florida who installed the tires. I decided to replace the other 3 tires for our safety even though these tires are rated for 50,000 miles. The tire shop that installed the new tires did note the front tire had bubbles forming, this is an indication that this tire was also prone to tread separation possibly leading to a more serious accident. The tires that are in question is capitol ht 265-70-17 dot number skvr rc 4713. I have received 3 estimates for the body work estimating around $2500 plus the cost of four new tires. I have several pictures that I can send.
