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.

I have had to replace one tire because of a sidewall separation rip. Now I have discovered the same defect on two other tires. The tread is good and there is no reason why it should be separating. These tires need to be recalled. The tires in question are 225/45 R17 and 245/45 R17.
