Bridgestone Recalls Tires

By Staff Writer September 25, 2018

Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC (BATO) is recalling certain Firestone FS818 tires with date codes 2318-2418, Bridgestone M854 tires with date codes 2418-2518, Bridgestone M860A tires with date code 2518, and Bridgestone M864 tires with date codes 2318-2418, all of size 425/65R22.5.

The sidewall steel body cords may be exposed, which can cause unexpected rapid air loss during use. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 119, "New Pneumatic Tires - Other than Passenger Cars." Rapid air loss can increase the risk of a crash.

BATO will notify owners, and replace the tires with a comparable replacement, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
