You can go to NHTSA web site and do search to see if your vehicle or tires or other components are under recall.

RE tires. All tires are suppose to be registered by selling dealer. When on new RV that would be the RV dealer responsibility. If you buy tires then the tire dealer is suppose to do that.

You can learn more about tire registration in my blog post on the topic.
Roger, I need to clarify what I emboldened in red above from you. Tire Dealers are not by law required to register your tires. They are by law required to provide YOU (the buyer) with a form to register the tires that has the dealers information and tires DOT on them....in which the purchaser can then mail in or register online at most of the tire manufacturers websites, or this one:

Dealer Tire Registration | CIMS Tire Registration for Consumers and Dealers | Akron, OH

If a dealer doesn't provide the customer with the tire registration form, then they are legally obligated to register the tires for them.

I just wanted to clear up that confusion, so a member doesn't get in an argument somewhere on what the law is and isn't.

Yes you are correct with the clearer info. When I asked for the tire registration forms from my RV dealer when picking up my new Class-C All I got was a blank stare. So I made the effort to find the web site above where I could register my tires myself. I have been given the forms from a couple of tire dealers over the years so not all are clueless.

I recently bought GY Marathons for the TT and the tire dealer provided no paperwork to register them with. Are the serial numbers on the sidewall? I would like to register them.

Edit: As I don't trust the tire shop...

Putting LR-E on a vehicle that specified LR-G is definitely a recall worthy item.
I suggest you
Get a good, in focus picture of the label
Get a shot of a tire showing size and get the tire DOT serial numbers then file complaint with NHTSA. Even if they take care of you it would take action from NHTSA to order FR to recall all similar vehicles so they get inspected and fixed.
Others may be in same boat but not realize it and end up having to pay for damage to their RV if/when a tire fails.

Please do your fellow RVers a favor and file the complaints.

That is correct but the full serial number all 6 to 13 letters and number after the letters D O T
are needed by NHTSA

Matter of fact if you post the DOT S/N here i can tell you who and where the tires were made.

You can register your Goodyear tires here if you choose.

You may have the required information on your sales receipt.
