VITAL INFORMATION THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR SAFETY & THAT OF YOUR FAMILY!

Following is an excerpt from TOM'S JOURNAL about how unsafe many tires being sold as new really are. In a nutshell, tires sold as new, never having been used, may have been sitting in a warehouse for four, five, six, or more years, & there have been documented instances of failure of these "new" tires. There is a link to a video clip from 20/20 that airs on ABC.

Please pass it on to as many people as you know. It could save someone's life. Thanks for sharing this, Tom!

THERE IS A SHORT COMMERICAL VIDEO AT THE BEGINNING, LET IT PLAY BEFORE WATCHING THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE. SHOCKING!!
This is a video of a segment that aired on the well-known ABC TV program, "20/20." Please watch this; and, for Heaven's sake, whatever you do, pass this along to everyone you know! It may save your life, or that of someone you know! Click on the link below. If that doesn't work, copy and paste it into your web browser.
I had never heard of this before. This is worth watching.
Check your tires and read the code on (the inside of) your tires...a worthwhile safety tip

I remember a boycott against Firestone in my early teenage years because of unsafe tires that were made.

I buy mine used anyway but thanks for the update!! *M*

Good job, Dirk! Thank you for helping me spread the word about faulty tires in America--- and it is just another sham and lie visited on good, honest, hard working people who are being cheated and murdered on our highways nowdays. "One hand washes another."
