Firerstone Tire Recall Issued

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 08T024

Synopsis:
Bridgestone Firestone (BFNT) is recalling 184 Firestone brand FS400 tires, size 315/80R22.5 Load Range L, commercial truck tires manufactured between June 15 and June 28, 2008. These tires were not branded with the maximum speed limit rating required by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 119, "New Pneumatic Tires for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of more than 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) and Motorcycles." If these tires are used at speeds above their 55mph maximum speed limit, there is a possibility that a tread/belt detachment may occur, leading to a loss of vehicle control. This creates a risk of a crash, serious injury, or death. BFNT will notify owners of the safety campaign. Firestone dealers will replace the tires of the line and sizes covered by this campaign with new tires; and mount the replacement tires free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or about September 19, 2008. Owners may contact BFNT toll-free at 1-800-847-3272.
For more information for this particular recall, please go to 08T024.
