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.

I purchased Bridgestone dueler alenza hl tires at 42509 on 06/10/2009 and on 04/10/2011 I had a slow leak and went to Bridgestone dealer for repair but noticed cracking in tread. I was told this was normal! in May 2013 my mechanic said this cracking was dry rot and I verified with other tire dealer truck had 70693 mile. This is a 65000 mile tire and I only had 14000 miles before cracking started- this is a safety hazard. I did not go back to Bridgestone dealer because I was given inaccurate info and I bought Michelin instead. I called Bridgestone and they told me there was nothing they could do and "have a nice day."!!!! good luck if you buy these!

I bought new GMC sierrra in mid 2004, truck equipped with Goodyear Wrangler St. Truck exhibits very poor wet traction and excessive tire wear. When tire was approximately at 18,000 miles had serious spin out on I75 South of tampa in lite rainy condition. Since then noticed tire spin on slightest wet roads, even has trouble pulling out of car washes. This is dangerous tire and should not be instilled on large vehicles. Tire is down to wear marks and only has 28000 miles. Tires have been rotated and maintained only by GM dealers. Goodyear dealer states this tire should not have been installed on full size trucks, it will wear excessively and may lead to blowout. Dealership won't do anything and Goodyear states it is not covered by warranty because it was original equipment installed by manufacturer.
