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.

The contact owns a 2000 Toyota Tacoma. The contact purchased 4 weld wheel the mountain crusher rims. When the vehicle was washed and it rained the water seeped into the rims and created a puddle. The water also damaged the color of the rims. Intense motor sports diagnosed the rims, and stated there was nothing they could do.

Several repairs to wheels and tires. Re:steve & kathy mittman the consumer had been to three Toyota dealers in performing repairs to the wheels and tires. Beaver Toyota performed two complete alignments and replaced three wheels that were out of specifications. American Toyota has performed a complete alignment, mounted and balanced all the tires on the wheels, prior to replacement by beaver Toyota. Karl malone had replaced two tires that were found to have excessive run out, as well as mount and balanced all four tires on the new wheels. The manufacturer agreed that this was a defect but declined to replace all five tires and the rims due to sources who stated the tires were within specification.
