GREENVILLE, S.C., AUG. 10, 2015 – BFGoodrich® Tires announced today it is recalling approximately 129,000 tires that were sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Approximately 104,000 of the recalled tires were sold in the U.S. market. These tires are primarily found on commercial light trucks, as well as fullsized heavy-duty vans, small RVs and some 3/4 and one ton pick-up trucks.

This recall, which has been reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), includes eight specific commercial light truck tire sizes that were produced under the following three product names: BFGoodrich Commercial T/A All-Season, BFGoodrich Commercial T/A All-Season 2 and BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A.

BFGoodrich has observed that a limited number of these tires experienced a rapid loss of air pressure due to a rupture of the sidewall in the bead area under severe usage conditions. This can result in a potential risk of loss of vehicle control or vehicle crash. At this time, there have been no injuries or fatalities reported.

BFGoodrich recommends consumers remove these tires as soon as possible in order to receive a similar
product at no cost. To return and replace these tires at no cost, please visit an authorized BFGoodrich dealer for assistance.
