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.

Mb E-350 2008 is equipped with low profile tires contipro contact 245/40 R 18 the tires contact distance from road surface to bottom of rim is app.2 inch. The rim diameter is app.19+ inches. The weight of the vehicle further reduces the contact distance. The momentum of the car at normal speed when comes across a small pot whole or an object the rim of the car itself burst the tire resulting into tire explosion and bending of the rim. This is a serious safety issue and if not corrected in a timely manner may lead to serious accidents including driver and other passers by including road death 2)this happens 2 times. Mbusa road assistance came 2 times and installed dummy tire came with the car. 3) mb usa refused to correct the problem I strongly believe that this is a defective design and must be reviewed as the rim itself may explode the tire and get bent as well.
