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 too have had several problems with rims and tires. I have had to replace 2 tires and 1 rim already. While driving my car now over 65 mph the steering wheel will shake. I am often scared to go over 50 due to that fact that I fear my tires will blow.

While accelerating on an on ramp to get onto interstate 84 in Connecticut, I hit a small pothole in the road and it majorly bent the wheel and caused the tire to come off of the wheel. This happened in the night and on a stretch of the highway that had no shoulder. I had to drive approximately a mile on this blown out tire and wheel to the next exit. The failure of this wheel cost me $350 (for the wheel) and another $150 (for the tire) plus labor charges. No mention of the problems with these wheels was mentioned when I took it to the dealer.

While trying to avoid a spin out in heavy snow. I turned to into the curb to help stop my car. My wheel is aluminum spoke design. All the spokes fractured completely out of the wheel. The tire still had air. My wheel came off. My rotor hit the ground and busted. My dad who is a mechanic came out before the tow truck took my car off and he said he never seen anything like it. The same comment came from the tow truck driver and the service manager at Mitsubishi. My car is low and the only body damage was from when the wheel dropped off added to when the tow truck lifted my front end. I was already in antilock mode and not going very fast in heavy snow conditions. At the most I should only have gotten a flat or bent rim.
