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.

New tires 90 days old approx. 1,000 - 1,500 miles used. Traveling westbound rte. 50 Maryland at 62-65 mph hov lane. Between bowie exit rte 301 and exits for rtes 495/95, thread on passenger side front tire completely separated from sidewalls. Sidewalls remained on tire rim but thread was completely detached from sidewalls. Able to pull into grassy shoulder area, county police immediately came on the scene followed by sha vehicle assistance crews. Incident caused rain reflector to detach from vehicle. Pictures of tire and rim are available. Contacting tire dealer this day for resolution.

I have a set of 215/55-17 lifeliner sle tires by cooper tires. They were installed on my 2006 Toyota Avalon at 19000 miles. I have 33000 on them now. They were balanced and rotated at 10000 miles. I have made 3 complaints to dealer about tires. They have been very rough riding like they have knots in them since the day they were installed. I have had alignment checked by Toyota and it is fine. The dealer gives excuses every time. I think these tires may have defects. They are getting worse everyday.
