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.

Tire started showing slow leak. After finding flat after sitting for 3 days, re-inflated at home then drove to service station to fully inflate. Two days later tire was at zero psi. Re-inflated again and took to service station for flat fix. Discovered that over 50% of the seam between the tread and the carcass had separated. Steel ply easily visible. One strand of the steel ply has moved out from the ply and has poked through the rubber. Tire was mounted 9/2000. It has 9 to 10,000 miles of mostly city driving on it. Other tires mounted at same time are holding pressure. I have not yet had them checked for any problems. I am having the installing company look at the tire and I am working with for replacement of this tire.
