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.

I am currently driving a 2005 Toyota Tacoma X runner. There are cracks across the treads of at least two of the four tires on the truck (Bridgestone potenza tires). I went to a Bridgestone shop and they told me to drive across the street and talk to the Toyota dealership. The Toyota dealership told me there was nothing they could do. I do not feel safe driving a vehicle with cracks across the entire tread face. I am not the only person with this problem, nearly all of the X runner drivers have the same problem; some of which get the tires replaced or get the run-around like myself. Please help me. I am a college student and I need safe transportation.

I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma X-runner. I have tires that are splitting across the tread. It seem that every model of this truck is having the same problem and no recall is being done. www.customtacos.com/forum/showthread.php?T=46086&page=17&highlight=tire I do not feel safe with my tires splitting. And no one seems to be trying to take care of this problem. My auto is only 8 months old, and I don't want to replace 5 $260 a tire out of my own pocket.

2005 Toyota Tacoma X-runner purchased the truck in August of 2005 with 2K miles on it and noticed there is a large crack across the rear right tire. I would like to inform you that other people with the same truck are having the same problems. I'm not sure if this is a safety issue yet. For more information, the forum is at www.customtacos.com under X-runner talk / tire problems.

I'm reporting this for my friend with a 2005 Toyota X-runner with the original oem Bridgestone potenza RE050 18" tires. The tire has a split all the way across the right rear tire that looks as if it is a gash. Looked at all of the other tires and the right front one is just starting to show signs of splitting in the same manner. Vehicle has just about 3,000 miles. Many other people I know that have X-runners are having the same exact problem, some of which have all 4 tires that are split. The dot # on all 4 tires on this truck are Y79B jac 0805. Other tires I've seen affected have different dot #'s as well. As of now, nothing has been tried to fix the problem as many people I know with have had a hard time trying to get them replaced as Bridgestone/Firestone will not admit a defect yet. I have taken a couple pictures that are at the following links for your examination.

2005 Toyota Tacoma xrunner. The consumer states the tires from the factory have a crack on the tread, perpendicular to the way the vehicle turns. This is a Bridgestone potenza, RE050. Tire. This is on the passenger side rear tire. The Firestone dealer states it is nothing the consumer has done or run over. They are going to replace the defective tire. The consumer feels all of the tires need to be replaced. There were 3,500 miles on the vehicle when this happened. The consumer noticed the problem August 22, 2005. On Sept. 1, 2005 the consumer noticed that both front tires also had cracks in the tread. The local Firestone dealer replaced 4 tire (they refused to replace the spare) with new Bridgestone potenza S03. The damaged tire were given to the local Firestone dealer.

My tire looks like its going to come apart. There is something that looks like a cut from one side of the tire to the other. I havent ran anything over for it to do that. My friend has the same truck and his tire is doing the same thing.my friend and I went to a Firestone dealer in san diego and they said they could not do anything until it gets worse.
