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.

3 miles from home the front tire on our Mazda3 came apart in 3 full pieces, two side walls and the center, causing $1800 in damage. I returned the tire to yokohama tire Corp. Because of the damage, they said it was not the tires fault, they called it a run flat and that they would not pay for the damages. So while the car was at the body shop I had four new tires installed, not yokohama tires. Also the adjuster for my insurance company, said that he never seen a tire separate like that.

Tires cupping and wearing quickly on inside of both tires in the same manner. Research and discussion with mechanics indicate the issue is likely due to camber. Camber is within manufacturer specifications, but causes extremely rapid tire wear.
