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.

Complaint for dunlop radial tubeless tires, 205145 R17 (84V) sp sport 01, run flat tires. I was washing my 2007 MINICooper S (with approximately 8,000 miles) and noticed that the left front tire had severe bubbling of the side wall. I took it to the dealer to have it replaced, explaining that I had not had any unusual impact on the tire and that it must be defective. The dealership was unwilling to compensate me for the tire, saying that I had to go directly to dunlop. I had the tire replaced on March 13th, 2008 because I live in an area where driving is a necessity and was worried about the possible outcomes if I did not replace it. It was replaced at assael BMW/MINIof monrovia, ca. Less than three weeks later, I noticed yet another bubble on the newly replaced tire! again, there was no unusual impact upon the tire wall, no rub marks, and no obvious defects on the outside of the tire. Again, because of safety issues, I am forced to have the tire replaced, but am filing an official complaint for each tire, costing approximately $387. In addition, over the past two years, I have had three additional dunlop brand run flat tires replaced because of side wall ballooning at my expense. I would advise that all owners of the tires described above carefully check their tires for possible ballooning, as this seems to be a recurring problem that dunlop and/or the dealership is unwilling to acknowledge.
