BFGoodrich® Tires Announces Safety Recall For Certain Commercial Light Truck Tire Sizes

44

Greenville, S.C., AUG. 10, 2015 - BFGoodrich® Tires announced today it is recalling approximately 129,000 tires that were sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Approximately 104,000 of the recalled tires were sold in the U.S. market. These tires are primarily found on commercial light trucks, as well as full-sized heavy-duty vans, small RVs and some 3/4 and one ton pick-up trucks.

This recall, which has been reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), includes eight specific commercial light truck tire sizes that were produced under the following three product names: BFGoodrich Commercial T/A All-Season, BFGoodrich Commercial T/A All-Season 2 and BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A.

BFGoodrich has observed that a limited number of these tires experienced a rapid loss of air pressure due to a rupture of the sidewall in the bead area under severe usage conditions. This can result in a potential risk of loss of vehicle control or vehicle crash. At this time, there have been no injuries or fatalities reported.

The tires involved in this recall include:
