Bridgestone to recall some truck/bus tires

Order Reprints

Bridgestone Americas Inc. will begin recalling certain Bridgestone R192 medium truck/bus tires (size 275/70R22.5) used on intra-city transit buses. The recall is expected to start in July.

"These tires feature a sidewall wear indicator (dimple) that is used by technicians to monitor sidewall wear," say National Highway Traffic Safety Administration officials.

"The specified depth of the subject tire's dimples may result in exposed body ply cord. Over time, this condition could result in the deterioration of the body ply cord, creating the potential for air loss at the location of the dimple. Air loss in the tire will increase the risk of a crash."

Bridgestone will replace the affected tires for free. Owners may contact the company at (800) 465-1904 for more information.
