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 driver side FIRESTONE factory installed tire blew right off the rim leaving the steel belt on the RIM. This happened after a road trip and the car had been in my driveway for about 15 minutes. With a very loud BANG, the tire blew off the rim.

My mechanic made a house call and could not believe his eyes. He had never seen anything like this before!

Pirelli--now that is a tire!
