Continued Use Could Lead To Groove Cracking

More than 160,000 tires have been recalled by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.

Bridgestone/Firestone North America Tire, LLC has recalled 135,310 Firestone FR380 tires, size P235/75R15, manufactured between June 4, 2006, and Sept. 8, 2007, and 26,941 Lemans Champion SE tires, size P235/75R15, manufactured between June 4, 2006, and Sept. 2, 2006.

These tires were produced with insufficient tread base gauge. Continued use of the tires may lead to vibration and groove cracking. Extended use could lead to tread distortion or tread separation and loss of vehicle control.
Bridgestone/Firestone will notify owners and replace the affected tires free of charge, and will also mount and balance the replacement tires at no charge or expense to the owner.

For more information, owners can call Bridgestone/Firestone toll-free at 1-800-465-1904 or visit their Web site.
