Tire Recalls

Some of our members may find this useful. I don't know if I ever pointed this out, but anyone can sign up to be e-mail notified of tire recalls (as well as other vehicle related ones) that the NHTSA governs. Some of our members may be interested in at least watching for ones that affect their personal vehicles. You can sign up for them below.

Recall Notification by Email | Safercar.gov | NHTSA

I usually post the ones I see that may affect trailers, or personal tow vehicles in another trailer forum I frequent. If others don't think it is a waste of forum space, I will use this topic to post the ones I get here so you can see if you have any on your vehicles.

Here is one I got this morning on Goodyears:

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12T003
Synopsis:
Goodyear is recalling certain Wrangler Silent Armor tires, sizes LT235/80R17 LRE, LT325/60R18 LRE, LT275/70R18 LRE, LT265/70R17 LRE, LT245/75R17 LRE, and LT285/70R17 LRD, produced from the 9th week of 2009, through the 22nd week of 2009 (March 31st through May 31st). These tires may experience a partial tread area separation under certain severe usage conditions. Partial tread separation could lead to vehicle damage when the separated tread strikes the vehicle. A tread separation could also cause a tire failure that could result in a motor vehicle crash. Goodyear will notify owners and replace the tires free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before March 22, 2012. Owners may contact Goodyear at 1-800-592-3267. For more information for this particular recall, please go to 12T003.


Here is one from last month on some Toyos, but this will be a car tire.


NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12T002
Synopsis:
Toyo Tire is recalling certain Toyo Extensa A/S tires, size P225/60R16 97T, produced from September 20, 2009, through November 6, 2010. Some of these tires may have been produced with a kink in the bead area. Under certain circumstances, the kink may eventually lead to a crack in the bead area, which is near the rim. If a crack develops and is left undetected, the tire may fail, potentially causing loss of vehicle control and a crash, which could result in injury or death. Toyo Tire will notify owners and replace the tires free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about February 2, 2012. Owners may contact Toyo Tire at 1-800-442-8696 (6:30am to 5pm Pacific time) (9:30am to 8pm Eastern time). For more information for this particular recall, please go to 12T002.


Also we have an addendum to this for our Canadian members:


Toyo Tire Canada Inc. is recalling approximately 1,884 Toyo Extensa A/S tires sold in Canada since September 2009 because of a possible manufacturing problem that could lead to cracks in the bead area and potentially to tire failure.

The recall is an extension of one disclosed earlier this week by Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. involving approximately 68,763 Extensa A/S tires sold in the U.S.


The tires being recalled are from Toyo’s plant in White, Ga., during a period starting in the 38th week of 2009 and lasting through the 44th week of 2010, Toyo said.


The tires are identified by the Tire Indentification Number (TIN) 3809 to 4410, molded into tire’s sidewall.

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12T004
Synopsis:
GTC North America, Inc., (GTC) is recalling certain Advance Extra Grip AR215 light truck radial tires, size P235/75R15, produced from September 2008 through December 2009. Some of the subject tires experience blistering or bubbles on the tire's sidewall. These tires fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles." These tires may experience blistering on their sidewall that, with extended use, could lead to tread chunking with belt edge exposure and possible air loss, thereby increasing the potential risk of property damage, personal injury, or a crash. GTC will notify owners, and replace the noncompliant tires with a similar tire free of charge. Free mounting and balancing will also be included, as applicable. The safety recall is expected to begin during March 2012. Owners may contact GTC at 1-330-498-5000. For more information for this particular recall, please go to 12T004.

These will be passenger vehicle car tires. There isn't really a danger per se with these tires, just that the partial/full DOT number with date code wasn't placed on the tires. These tires were actually ordered recalled by the NHTSA in 2009 and 2010, but Yokohama appealed the recall. The NHTSA denied both appeals last month.

I am surmising, if it's the date code that is actually missing, you really couldn't tell when the tire was manufactured.......so you get the tires replaced if the date code isn't on either sidewall, but it may be something else wrong with the markings.

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 09T014
Synopsis:
Certain Yokohama replacement tires, size 205/50R16 A680 87V, manufactured between September 1, 2007, and November 28, 2009, fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles." The molded markings on one sidewall do not contain the complete Tire Identification Number (TIN) or partial (TIN) as required. The lack of a tin on both sides of the tire could make it more difficult for consumers to identify these tires if, in the future, a safety-related performance issue were to be discovered. As a consequence, there is a risk that the tires would not be removed from service, which, in turn, could increase the risk of a vehicle crash. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about April 6, 2012. Owners may contact Yokohama Campaign Service Center at 1-888-801-4162. For more information for this particular recall, please go to 09T014.


NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 10T001
Synopsis:
Certain Yokohama Tires, size P215/60R15 AVID H4S 93H, manufactured between December 2, 2007, and September 19, 2009, fail to conform to the tire identification requirement Of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles." The molded markings on one sidewall do not contain the complete tire identification number (tin) or partial (tin) as required. The lack of a tin on both sides of the tire could make it more difficult for consumers to identify these tires if, in the future, a safety-related performance issue were to be discovered. As a consequence, there is a risk that the tires would not be removed from service, which, in turn, could increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Yokohama's petition for relief from remedy based on its belief that the noncompliance was inconsequential to motor vehicle safety was denied by NHTSA on February 16, 2012. Accordingly, Yokohama will conduct a safety recall campaign. It will notify registered owners and provide free replacement tires. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about April 6, 2012. Owners may contact Yokohama Campaign Service Center at 1-888-801-4162. For more information for this particular recall, please go to 10T001.

PT. Multistrada Arah Sarana is recalling certain Achilles Desert Hawk A/P light truck tires, sizes LT215/85R16 115/112L 10PR, LT235/85R16 120/116L 10PR, LT225/75R16 115/112L 10PR, produced between January 2010 and November 2011, and Radar Radial RLT-9 light truck radial tires produced from December 30, 2009, through January 31, 2011. The Achilles tires were produced with a narrow bead design which can cause blistering on the lower sidewall. The Radar tires have defective sidewall design which may lead to tread separation. Accordingly, the tires fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles." These tires may experience blistering on their sidewall or tread separation that may cause sudden loss of air, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. PT. Multistrada Arah Sarana will notify owners, and replace the noncompliant tires with a similar tire free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during April 2012. Owners may contact PT. Multistrada Arah Sarana Customer Hotline at 1-800-944-8414. For more information for this particular recall, please go to 12T006.

This tire recall affects bus tire sizes, which some of our Class A members could have on theirs.

Here are two recalls I received this morning. The second recall has the same tire listed in the first recall....which is a good example of showing how different brands are made by the same plants. Bad thing is, looking at the DOT code for the Sigma tires, they all came from the Cooper Tire plant in Texarkana, Arkansas. (American made).........which I am assuming produced all of these.

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12T010
Synopsis:
Cooper Tire & Rubber Company (Cooper) is recalling certain Cooper brand Discoverer H/T tires, sizes LT235/85R16 and P265/70R17; Discoverer LSX, size 265/70R17; and Mastercraft Courser HTR, size LT235/85R16. Also included in this recall are tires branded as Del-Nat Delta A/S Sierradial or National A/S Commando, size 265/70R17; Pep Boys Definity Dakota H/T, size P265/70R17; and TBC Sigma Stampede Radial SUV, size P265/70R17. Contaminated rubber may have been used in the tread compound which could result in tread separation. Tread separation can result in loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Cooper will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires free of charge. Free mounting and balancing will also be included, as applicable. The recall began on June 15, 2012. Owners may contact Cooper Tire & Rubber Company’s Consumer Relations Department at 1-800-854-6288. Cooper’s recall number is 156.
