Bridgestone recalls Firestone and Champion Fuel Fighter tires


The tire tread may separate.

Bridgestone/Firestone North America Tire is recalling 32 Firestone FR710 tires, size 205/65R16, and Champion Fuel Fighter tires, sizes 205/65R15 and 205/70R15, manufactured March 27, 2016, to April 9, 2016.

These passenger car replacement tires may have been manufactured with inconsistent rubber coverage over the steel plies. As a result, the tread may separate increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Bridgestone will notify the owners who purchased the tires, and dealers will replace the tires, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Bridgestone customer service at 1-800-847-3272.
