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.

To return and replace these tires at no cost, please visit your BFGoodrich dealer for assistance. To locate a BFGoodrich dealer, click here.
