Dunlop Tire Recall

Goodyear is recalling 5,300 Dunlop Winter Sport 3D tires, size 225/50R17 (DOT Code DM40 2TTR), and Dunlop Winter Sport M3 tires, size 275/35R18 (DOT Code DMBL 2J8R), manufactured in Germany from September 4, 2005, through May 17, 2008. These tires fail to conform to the tire strength requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109, "New Pneumatic Tires." Tires not meeting the tire strength test requirement could be more susceptible to failure following impact with road hazards. Tire failure following road hazards can result in a vehicle crash.

Goodyear will notify owners and replace the noncompliant tires. Owners will be notified during August 2008 and replacement tires will be available by August 30, 2008. Owners may contact Goodyear at 1-800-321-2136.
