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, I heard a noise from the tire. When I pulled over, the tread from the center of the tire had come loose. I drove off the highway and had it checked. There was sbout two inches of tread missing. I could put my hand in the hole and underneath the tread that remained. These tires had been bought less tha two weeks before the incident. They were bought at and installed by a good year dealer.

The left rear tire side completely shredded;no apparent puncture, only $33000 miles on tires/rate of speed was 70 mph, could have very easily resulted in a serious accident for a less experienced driver. Several people that looked at the tire commented that it was not your normal flat tire.( dot number: Tire size: Rt/S )
