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.

On highway with 65 mph, front tire (Bridgestone potenza RE92 P205/55R) blewout with no reason. There was a quarter sized hole on the sidewall. This caused damage to rim as well. Bridgestone authorized dealer did not accept this as a defective tire even though tires should be covered under manufacturer's warranty. I had to buy a new tire and rim and paid tow.
