    Firestone Destination and Bridgestone Ecopia tires recalled

    There may be a pinhole in the upper sidewall of the tire

    Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations (BATO) is recalling 1,827 Firestone Destination LE3 255/60R19 tires with DOT codes 2420 through 2820, and Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus P255/60R19 tires with DOT codes 2820 through 3120.

    The tires may have been manufactured with a small pinhole in the upper sidewall of the outboard side of the tire.

    Tires with a pinhole may leak air slowly, and – if undetected or ignored -- the continued loss of air may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

    What to do

    BATO will notify owners, and based on the date code and press identification number of the tire, dealers will replace the tires with a comparable replacement free of charge.

    The recall is expected to begin December 18, 2020.

    Owners may contact BATO customer service at (800) 847-3272.
