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.

GTO 5.7L V8

The tire rub should be fixed by GM. People could die from this. So fix now or risk pay-offs. That's what your going to do anyways..

problem #1

Mar 112006

GTO 5.7L V8

  • Manual transmission
  • 29,000 miles

Over time, the front tires started throwing cords - when I turned the wheel full right, I noticed the tread had completely separated from the sidewall. When I pulled the wheel, I saw the rub marks on the struts - the tires were rubbing against the struts! By the sheer grace of god I didn't have a blow-out. I looked at the other wheel and found it to be in worse shape! This car was not driven hard on a regular basis, it was never autocrossed... and after going to a few GTO message boards I found out this was NOT an isolated incident. If anyone is considering one of these, inspect your struts and inner front tires VERY carefully!
