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 contact owns a 2005 Ford Five hundred. The contact noticed that contritract touring ct 95 tires, size P215/60 R17 were missing chunks of rubber. There were 6,000 miles on the tires. The dealer was unable to diagnose the failure, and the tires were replaced. Approximately six months later the contact once again noticed missing chunks of rubber. The newly replaced tires had 2,000 miles on them. The manufacturer stated that it was normal wear and tear. The contact stated that the vehicle was only driven on paved roads. The current and failure mileage were 8,000.

: the contact stated while driving 60 mph on the interstate, the right rear tire blew out without warning. There were no obvious road hazards. Complete tread separation was present. The contact managed to pull over without incident. The tire was removed and taken to the dealer who determined there was a pinhole in the tire that possibly caused the initial blowout. The tire was shipped to the manufacturer for further inspection. The tire was a pirelli P225/55R18, dot # N9wnf7. Updated 10/31/2006 - pirelli replaced all four tires under the condition that all four tires be sent to them.

I have a 2005 Ford fivehundred that is equiped with Continental contact touring tires. According to Continental's website, these tires should last for sixty thousand miles. Currently my vehicle has 15,000 miles on it and two of the tires are completely worn out. I have been advised by my dealer that it is not safe to drive the vehicle. Continental states that Ford should warranty the tires. Ford states Continental should warranty the tires. Tires that wear out this quickly must be defective. This type tire should be investigated further to prevent someone from being in an accident and/or being killed.
