Bridgestone Recalls 127,183 Firestone Tires

June 30, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations is recalling 127,183 Firestone FR380 tires (size P235/75R15) manufactured from Sept. 9, 2007 through July 2, 2008. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, these tires were produced with insufficient tread base gauge. Continued use of the tires could lead to vibration and groove cracking. There is also the risk of tread distortion or tread separation and loss of vehicle control. 

Bridgestone will notify owners and replace the affected tires free of charge. The company will also mount and balance the replacement tires, all at no charge.
