This is in response to the new Toyota recall on the sienna mini-vans spare tire. I own a 2002 Toyota Tacoma, in which the frame was recently replaced due to rust perforation in certain states. I am the original owner and back in 8/2007 I had a flat tire and had to change it. The spare tire resides under the vehicle and is secured by a cable. When I went to access the spare, I noticed the whole cable and the surrounding pieces were severely rusted and was very difficult to separate the tire from the cable. After hearing about the recall on the sienna for the spare tire getting rusty, and possibly falling loose while driving, I realized that my Tacoma, and possibly other vehicles that use this method, and are exposed to extreme climate conditions, could trigger a similar event.

Two Firestone tires on my truck blew out on the freeway within 10 days of eachother, while my wife was driving. This put her in extreme danger and a very unsafe situation.

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.
