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.

General ameritrac tires on a 2006 GMC Sierra crew cab 2wd are showing excessive wear and tread loss. The tires have only 24000 miles and need to be replaced. During a recent rainstorm I was hydroplaning on the freeway. The tires have hardly any tread left on the outside of the front tires. The tires will be replaced in the very near future.

I was driving down airline hwy North bound before peque lane right by golf course at bridge the road is not really a pot hole but road is very distorted and the way I hit it, it put a big egg and split in my tire. This is an area were it has been like this for awhile and if you hit that spot it will mess your car up or make it hard to control your car. The tires I own are very high priced and I purchased not to long ago. I would like help in replacing the tire. I did go back and take pictures of the area in witch I hit to cause this to happen to the tire. The tires are $700 to $800 each but only one front right tire was damaged. I will have to order it.

My tires started falling apart around 11000 miles. The sidewalls are indenting and the tread is coming off the tire as well as extreme feathering. The dealer has tested the alignment and balance. I currently have 13000 on my truck and finally got the dealer to replace them but only with the same brand of tire.
