RECALL Subject : Inconsistent Rubber Coverage of Steel Plies

Report Receipt Date: APR 20, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16T005000
Component(s): TIRES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 32

Manufacturer: Bridgestone/Firestone North America Tire


Bridgestone/Firestone North America Tire (Bridgestone) is recalling certain 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.
A tread separation increases the risk of a crash.
Bridgestone will notify the owners that 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.
