BATO recalls 15-inch Firestone FR380 tires

Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC (BATO) is recalling approximately 127,183 size P235/75R15 Firestone FR380 tires built between Sept. 9, 2007, and July 2, 2008.

"These tires were produced with insufficient tread base gauge," according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration officials.

"Continued use of the subject tires may lead to vibration and groove cracking. Extended use could lead to tread distortion or tread separation and loss of vehicle control."

BATO will notify owners and replace the affected tires free of charge. The tiremaker also will mount and balance the replacement tires, all at no charge or expense to the owner. Owners of recalled tires may contact BATO at (800) 465-1904 or visit
