BFGOODRICH ANNOUNCES VOLUNTARY SAFETY RECALL FOR COMMERCIAL T/A A/S TIRES
GREENVILLE, S.C., JUL. 26,2012 – BFGoodrich is voluntarily recalling two sizes of its BFGoodrich Commercial T/A A/S tires. These tires are typically found on commercial light trucks and full-sized heavy duty vans, although it is possible that consumers have purchased these replacement tires for their personal vehicles as well.
- The tires were produced between April 2010 and the end of July 2012.
- Sizes are: LT 235/85 R16 120 Q LRE and LT 245/75 R16 120 Q LRE.
- In Canada, approximately 11,500 replacement tires are affected.
- Affected tires may exhibit tread loss and/or rapid air loss, resulting from tread belt separation.
BFGoodrich recommends removal of these tires as soon as possible. The removed tires will be replaced with a similar product free of charge.
