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.

problem #1

I was told that the tire was driven while low. I check the air in my tires once sometimes twice a week. The mechanic that looked at my tire said that it only has to be a little low to start rubbing on the rim. As you can see by my mileage I drive quite a bit. Plus both my dad (retired) and my husband work for uniroyal tires. My husband is a tirebuilder. I am just glad the tires didn't blow while I was driving on the highway. I am 36 years old and this is the first time I have every had a tire ruined in 20000 miles. I think something is wrong with these tires. So does my dad and husband. (tiresize: 192/55/R15)
