Bridgestone recalling thousands of Firestone trailer tires

| 2/9/2016

Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations will be recalling nearly 36,000 trailer tires, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents. Potential tread separation is the root cause of the recall.

More specifically, certain Firestone FS561 replacement tires used on trailers, size 255/70R22.5 that were manufactured from Jan. 25, 2015, to Jan. 27, 2016, are affected. Tires subjected to the recall may experience possible tread separation or detachment due to scrubbing during use.

Bridgestone will notify owners affected by the recall that dealers will replace the tires for free. Notification schedule is still pending. For more information, contact Bridgestone at 800-847-3272.
