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 Jan. 10 2014 I purchased 2 new tires from les swab here in oroville ca. In Oct. 2015 I noticed a wobble in my steering, took the car back to where I purchased the tires and ask them to rotate the tires and check for defects. Was told tires were ok but the problem persisted, went to a local repair shop and was told I had a tire bad tire separation, went back to les swab and they replaced the defective tire. Today the local repair shop advised me I had another tire separation and would have to be replaced. It is evident to me they are selling defective tires that should be recalled before someone gets killed.

I had purchased a set of bfgoodrich premium touring tires from costco. I have had blowouts in 4 of 6 tires, all with around 45-55000 miles on them. The sidewall had cracks that went from the tread down across the sidewall. I have only had 1 blowout since I started driving since 1978. Besides these tires. I put 70000 miles on the original tires without problems. I do not understand how this many tires have blown. By the way, the 2 tires that did not blow out had cracks forming on the sidewall by the tread as well. (the reason I had 6 is because 2 were replaced under warranty) the "tires plus" store I went to did not understand why the tires were doing what they were doing, but he did say that it was not normal. I just want to help prevent accident or injury to others. It may just be the tire size that is affected. The tires were not old, the tires plus manager checked that first when he saw the tire. I have a set that were placed on my 1991 Ford tempo and they are not showing the same cracking. I only have about 30000 miles on them right now. 3 of the 4 blowouts were on the front and one on the passenger rear.

Our front left tire literally exploded while driving on the freeway at approximately 70 miles per hour. It looks like a bomb had exploded inside it. We have never had this happen before - this type of catastrophic failure in a tire. The company is Continental and the tire size is P215.60R16 94T (for a mid size car) and on the lower side it has touring contact as. This is a brand that we have never purchased before - it was on the car when purchased as a used car (1 year old). We thank god this did not result in a terrible accident, considering the speed and location it happened. If you have any information regarding other problems with this tire, we would appreciate being advised of this. Thornton weymouth
