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.

Wrangler P265/70R16 tire I had been putting air in two of the four tires for the last six months every week. There is a defect in the rubber above thread and in the riggs on the tire I was told by two tire repair store (Goodyear being the second ) could not be repaired where located. On the10th of March my tire was flat down to the rim and during the ice black out (no heat for 3 days) no car to go anywhere to get out of the cold then being told by Goodyear / dealer they could not exchange or rebate anything on a new tire. I have three more tires that I am worried about having too replaced and good year refuses to do recall or compensate myself or others for clearly defective tires ! I paid $157.48 for another tire which should have still been under warranty and replaced free of charge!! I don't do a lot of driving. 2001 vehicle and190,00 miles. I am on fixed income and worried about coming out finding another flat tire that is defective. Pls. Issue a recall and make Goodyear be a honest business and recall what they know are defective tires Wrangler P265/70R16. My tires are almost like new verry little wear. I have pictures ! I am afraid for my life as well as others if these tires collapse while we are driving and not sittin still. My family has been notified (also contact with you) if anything happens to me regarding these tires ! do the right thing and recall theses almost new tires !! (tread wise)before someone is killed or seriously hurt for life ! thank you for your quick response I am almost afraid to drive my car, but have no other choice !! scared to drive.

3 years ago I purchased 225/75 R15 from les schwab tires. The tires are rotting and cracking in the sidewall. Have been like this for about 1 year. I drive the car everyday and cannot see a reason for this to be happening. They are hankook tires.
