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.

While driving 50 mph. With out notice, the front passenger tire exploded. Checking the tire shows in middle of tread the tires steel belt just blew and popped out of the tread. Tho there is high mileage on the tires the tread wear is still very good. No damage to side wall and nothing was hit on roadway. Tire just exploded with out notice. The gap is across the entire width of tread approx 6 inches.
