Goodyear Recalls 1,650 G399A LHS Truck Tires
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is recalling certain G399A LHS Fuel Max truck tires, size 295/75R22.5 LRG, manufactured Jan. 24, 2016, to May 28, 2016. The potential number of units affected is 1,650.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Campaign ID Number for the recall is 16T010.
NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation says that due to an anomaly during the curing press set-up operation, incomplete adhesion between the tread and the top belt may have occurred. "Incomplete adhesion may result in tread separation of the tire while in use, increasing the risk of a crash."
Goodyear will notify the vehicle manufacturers that purchased the tires, as well as those who purchased the steer tires as replacement equipment. The vehicle manufacturers will notify their owners.
Dealers will replace the affected tires with similar tires free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin Oct. 15, 2016. Owners may contact Goodyear customer service at (800) 592-3267.
