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.

After driving approximately 20 minutes at a speed of approx. 30 mph on a gravel road Firestone wilderness P265/70R16 rear tire blew out on my '01 GMC Yukon with complete tread separation, and the radials breaking. My husband changed the tire with our spare that is the same make/model. Approx. 10 minutes later on a paved road at a speed of 45 mph, the spare blew out with complete tread separation. Our vehicle was towed to the dealership, and there was no problem found with the vehicle. They believe the tires are defective. We have replaced all four tires on our vehicle and kept the Firestone for evalution and analysis purposes.

Was sold new vehicle with P265 tires. GMC says the dealer can put any tire he wants on the vehicle, the dealer didn't know it states in owners manual don't use tire chais with P265 tires. See page 6-52 Yukon 2001 owners manual. I have filed a complaint with GMC #C05410969. I feel it is a serious condition for a dealer to be able to sell a vehicle with P265 tires without having to at least worn buyer that they can not use snow chains on P265. I really feel this is a dangerous dealer selling practice. Note: > this applies to all GMC pickup's and SUV's.

11:45am on 8/27/01 tire separation occurred at 60 mph on pa rte 476S, mile marker 14. Contacted GM who could care less; they did not record the incident even though I tried to report it; they told me to contact Firestone and that it was not GM's problem; called Firestone and all they cared about was whether it was an at wildnerness tire; Firestone told me to go to a local dealer for assistance. I am scared to death to drive this car at high speed again. What should I do? (dot number: 8X72 5000 tiresize: P265/70R16)

I was exiting the 5 freeway northbound onto the 55 North when my carred suddenly tilted to the left severely. I did not jerk back the wheel and it stratightened itself out. I pulled over and I had a flat left rear tire. I drove to the dealer and told them iw wanted new tires (my wife had previously requested new tires. They refused, , iwent to costco bought new michellens. Costco filled my flat and they could not get the tire to leak. It looked perfect and near new. (dot number: 8X72wlt tiresize: 26570R16)
