Bridgestone/Firestone North America Tire is recalling eight 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 replacement passenger car 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
All the affected tires have been contained and destroyed, therefore, an owner notification letter will not be issued for this campaign. All affected tires were returned to Bridgestone on May 5, 2016.
Owners may contact Bridgestone customer service at 1-800-847-3272.
