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.

Dry rot is showing in between the tread of all 4 tires. The tires were purchased new from sam's club. Touring T/a dot (ap5M) (A721) (0212). There is 8/32 of the tread remaining, measured by sam's. I have had the tires rotated every 4500 miles. I asked about the dry rot and the manager told me that I wash the car too much. The manufacturer and sam's will not work with me to remove the danger of a blow out on these tires. They need to be recalled as unsafe.

I purchased 4 uniroyal long touring P215/60R16 tires from wal-mart. At 5,000 miles I had the tires rotated at wal-mart. After rotating the tires, the next day there was a tremendous vibration while driving. Wal-mart says there are flat spots in the tire tread on all four tires and this was caused by alignment and suspension. Wal-mart manager said to have alignment and suspension checked and then they would replace warranted tires. Alignment and suspension checked and found to be in order. Wal-mart manager refuses to change tire. Three tire shops have said the problem is a manufacture defect in tires, not alignment or suspension. I also learned wal-mart placed three different D.O.T. number tires on my car. D.O.T. numbers Y9xbvnuu1509/ 2809 and (2) 2909.
