Bridgestone recalls 36 truck tires

Posted on December 12, 2013

Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC is recalling certain H300 315/80R22.5 18-ply tires manufactured January 2012 through August 2013 and sold to customers in Guam.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) campaign ID number is 13T011. The potential number of affected units is 36.

According to NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation, the affected tires "may lose pressure from a crack at the inner liner splice. Such a crack could penetrate into the sidewall, resulting in a bulge on the sidewall.

"A sidewall bulge may result in a tire deflation and subsequent tire failure which increases the risk of a crash."

Bridgestone will notify owners and dealers will replace the tires free of charge. Owners may contact:

1. Bridgestone at (617) 633-3026 or

2. NHTSA through the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236 or its www.safercar.gov website.

The recall is expected to begin this month.
