Bridgestone is Searching for Eight Tires Under Recall

Aug. 23, 2021

Bridgestone Americas Inc. and Bridgestone Canada are issuing a voluntary recall to recover a total of eight passenger tires that may have sustained a small pinhole in the outward-facing sidewall during manufacturing.

The impacted tires were manufactured at the company's passenger tire plant in Aiken, S.C., between July 11, 2021 and July 17, 2021 and include the following tire products/brands:

  • Firestone Destination LE3 tires in size 225/65R17 with DOT Tire Identification Number (TIN) Code 17X 2Y LE32 2821;
  • Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia tires in size P245/60R18 with DOT TIN Code 7X VD 423 2821;
  • Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza tires in size 275/55R20 with DOT TIN Code 7X Y1 DH7 2821;
  • Bridgestone Turanza EL440 tires in size 235/60R18 with DOT TIN Code 7X 45 JB2 2821;
  • Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus tires in size 235/55R20 with DOT TIN Code 7X 8A EC1 2821.

Bridgestone says that there are no known incidents or injuries related to the tires.

"However, tires included in this recall may not comply with U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard and/or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard performance requirements."

Bridgestone has determined only eight affected tires remain in the market.

"However, the company has extended the scope of this voluntary recall to include 21,513 tires manufactured on impacted equipment at the company's Aiken passenger tire plant within the compromised DOT Date Code week.

"Bridgestone is casting a wide net to find the eight affected tires that remain in the market. This approach is consistent with Bridgestone's longstanding commitment to quality, safety and customer satisfaction."
