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.

Ridgeline 6-cyl

(this is the abbv. Version of original 4091 character complete description.) 06/30/2006, fort smith Arkansas. Vehicle: 2006 Honda Ridgeline. Complaint re: Oem tires: Michelin tires (P245 65 R17 105S ltx M/S radial X)while negotiating a curve on garrison ave. Before 13th street, in the inner lane (4 lane road), traveling appx. 25-30 mph, was crowded into the curb by a car in left hand lane. There was not a hard impact, as the truck was roughly parallel to the curb. I felt the right side of the truck start to "climb up" on the curb. Immediately flattened both tires on the right side. Maintained control, & pulled off in parking lot. Both tires had "U-shaped flaps" ripped in the sidewall. Omitted exact description of the "rips" to reduce character count, but it's available on request. It was night, but I looked at the curb & road for any sharp objects that would explain the damage to the sidewalls & found nothing. Next day, I examined the curb & vicinity closely. I took photos of the tires, the curb, & vicinity. There was nothing that would have obviously caused the damage. I believe the tires blew out due to low speed contact with the curb. I believe the tire sidewalls are insufficient in design & construct for use on this truck, & that the tire sidewalls collapsed significantly when they came in contact with the curb, despite the fact that they did not sustain a direct impact. (all 4 tires fully inflated: Truck was only 4 months old & the tires had < 5000 miles on them). I believe the collapse of the sidewall caused it to be "pinched" by the rim, & due to substandard sidewall construct, it was followed but a sudden & catastrophic rip (blow out) up the sidewall. I still have the two tires. These tires were manufactured for oem placement on a 4 wheel drive truck, but failed to withstand a minor brush with a curb on a city street. I believe these tires are inferior in design, defective in construct, & sub-standard for the application.
