I have been having this screeching noise from the front under the hood next to the tires. When driving I felt its vibration and the front wheels were about to come off. I took it to my mechanic to look at it and he told me that the bolt joints on both side of the front are about to come off. He told me that he had seem customers wheels came off the freeways. On February 6, 2014, I have the bolt joints replaced in the total amount of $1,014.98. With this issue, I am very concern why Toyota has not recall this problem. My problem could have been worse if I was driving on the freeway and the wheels come off. Who knows what would have had happened. All I want is to have this matter solved by Toyota pay my service bill.

Driving on 81 N (mile marker 160) in pa at 7:10 am when front passenger tire blows out. This caused me to swerve across both lanes come back hit the guard rail. Truck flips over onto guard rail, slides for a ways on guard rail, then rolls over as it descends a hill. The blowout was in my lane (gauge in pavement) without any object in the road. Tire lost pressure instantaneously. Both tow driver & insurance adjuster pointed out tire as cause of accident. The tire was a Michelin ltx M/S2 with 33000 miles on it, but it had a 70000 mile warranty. Shape & direction of tear in tire is in the opposite direction of the tire rotation, so I take this as additional evidence that I didn't run over an object in the road.

I have a 2005 Tundra 2wd trd. I have to replace the steering rack and recommended that I replace both rear bearings. When looking the problems on the internet I have discovered that these issues are very common for the Tundra in earlier production. The steering rack was manufactured with inferior material that has been known to where out. The same with the rear bearings. If this is such a common problem why hasn't a formal investigation ever been performed on these two elements of the Tundra.

2005 Toyota Tundra doublecab, paint on wheels started bubbling, causing loss of air pressure in tires, had rims cleaned of peeling paint, all 4 wheels continue to leak air. Causing different air pressure in tires and causing tires to go flat.
