Bridgestone Issues Voluntary Recall of Certain Firestone Transforce Tires

Bridgestone Recalls Certain Firestone Transforce Tires

Bridgestone is recalling 10,380 Firestone Transforce HT and Firestone Transforce AT tires in size LT275/70R18.

Tires included in this recall were supplied to Stellantis as original equipment for installation on 2021-2022 RAM 2500 and RAM 3500 vehicles and were sold through retailers in the replacement market in the U.S. and Canada.

Bridgestone says that affected tires were not manufactured according to specification, and this could pose a safety risk.

Specifically, tires included in this recall may have been manufactured with an incorrect inner liner rubber compound. Increased permeability and/or cracking could allow air and moisture to migrate through the inner liner, into the tire’s carcass and eventually to the belt edges, which could lead to belt edge separations later in the tires’ service life, Bridgestone says.

Out of an abundance of caution, Bridgestone has extended the scope of the recall to include all potentially affected tires within the compromised DOT date code ranges, the company says.

All known customers, distributors and dealers will receive notification of the recall.

Bridgestone will replace affected tires with a comparable Bridgestone or Firestone brand tire or other suitable replacement at no charge to customers.
