NHTSA Warning the Public of Goodyear Tire Aftermarket Sales
According to nhtsa.gov, Goodyear initiated a recall of more than 170,000 tires manufactured from 1996 to 2003. The recalled tires involve tires used on recreational vehicles and trucks.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration discovered that the affected tires "experienced a high rate of failure on RVs" when compared to comparable truck tires. The recall was initiated because tire failure can lead to accidents with serious injury or death.
The Goodyear tire recall applies explicitly to G159 tires size 275/70R22.5, which are commonly used on RVs. Although the Goodyear G159 tires are no longer being manufactured, some RV owners may have recalled tires on their recreational vehicles or kept them as a spare and may not be aware. The NHTSA is urging those who own, rent or use a recreational vehicle or truck with 22.5-inch rims to make sure that the recalled tires are not on their motor vehicle.
It is possible that these tires may also be found for sale on online marketplaces. Under federal law, it is illegal to sell recalled tires or other recalled automotive equipment. The NHTSA opened an investigation into the Goodyear G159 tires based on complaint information collected from private litigation asserting that Goodyear G159 tires were installed on a Class A motor home failed, causing personal injuries or deaths.
Those who have a G159 tire can receive a free replacement tire from an authorized Goodyear commercial truck tire dealer or Goodyear Commercial Tire and Service Network location immediately. Goodyear is also offering $500 in exchange for the recalled tires that have not been placed on an RV.
