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 was traveling down an interstate when a rear tire blew out. The tire is a toyo cross country A/T. he tire separated completely leaving the sidewalls on the rim and the tread & belts & rest of the tire tore off in one piece. Luckily, there was no accident/ injury. I looked up recalls and found there is a recall. I did not receive a notice. I have tried to contact toyo and been on hold for over an hour at a time, left message without return call. The tires have less than 20,000 miles on them. I am now very concerned about the safety of the three remaining tires. There was only minor property damage to the truck.

My concern is that the tires on oem tires on my vehicle (2005 Toyota Tacoma X-runner) are defective. I had a "split" in my tire and I took it to Bridgestone and they said that they are aware of this problem and they replaced all of my tires, not just the problem one with no questions. Where my concern comes in is that I know other with the same vehicle as I have and they exact same problem, but the Bridgestone rep. In their area is telling them that they don't know anything about this problem and they will not do anything about it. If the tire is unsafe and some area know about this and are fixing it why are not all the areas aware of this. I feel that they are knowingly putting lives at risk by allowing this to go on with no solution.

I own a 2005 Toyota Tacoma X-runner. The truck came stock with Bridgestone potenza's RA050 (255/45/18) tires on it. Both rear tires started cracking along the tread of the tire. A number of other X-runner owners began having the same problem (customtacos.com, look for X-runner tire problem).

2005 Toyota Tacoma tire failure I would first like to make it clear, this truck has never been used for anything but going back and forth to the grocery store etc. It has never been put into four wheel drive. We purchased it for a cross country trip but were afraid to use it due to the tires wearing out at 3,000 miles and the continued vibration. (fyi-we took a plane) there is no way to get a good balance on the tires on the 2005 Toyota truck because of the design of the rims. I have had this vehicle to different dealers in different states and I get the same message for all. The tires wore out within the first 3000 miles and we had them replaced. The truck has a vibration that you can feel in the stirring and is showing uneven tire wear. I was told by a Toyota rep. That they were having this trouble with all the new trucks because of a change in design this year. This problem makes it unsafe to travel on interstates because you can't go over 45 without a significant vibration. A factory rep. Drove our truck and actually said there was no vibration at 85 mph. He did feel the vibration at lower speeds but said that there was nothing he could do about it. Besides the safety factor of the vibration this could be a real safety hazard when people can't afford a new set of tires every 3,000 miles so they drive on worn out tires.

I bought a brand new 05 Toyota Tacoma X-runner, it had about 1,500 mile on the car and the tire had a gash on it all across. It was the passanger side rear tire. The tires come stock from the dealer. I had a problem trying to change it with Firestone dealer but after the third Firestone dealer they decided to change only the one with the gash. I'm a little worried that the other ones are going to get the gash and might cause me to have an accident. The tires are Bridgestone potenza RE050 bl 255/45R18 99V. The option for these tires are not on your site.

The consumer's vehilce has less than 4,000 miles on it. The consuemr indicated that he only drives on paved roads. He has had 2 road hazards. The vehicle was purchased new with the tires on it. The first road hazard the dealer told him it was just a nail. The second road hazard they told him the same thing. The psi recommended for the front tires was 29, but the rear tires was 30. There were no abnormal bulges noticed. There were no warning lights to come on prior to this. The tires are Firestone tires. He regularly checks his tire pressure and has them rotated when needed.
