What’s the Problem?
This NHTSA Recall began in Dec. 2020, and affects the following tires:
- Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus P255/60R19 tires with DOT codes 2820 through 3120
- Firestone Destination LE3 255/60R19 tires with DOT codes 2420 through 2820
“The recalled tires may have been manufactured with a small pinhole in the upper sidewall of the outboard side of the tire,” NHTSA said. “Tires containing a pinhole may slowly leak air, and if undetected or ignored, the continued loss of air may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.”
This potential defect causes affected tires to fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles.”
If you purchased any tires that are affected by this recall, you should stop using them immediately and contact your Bridgestone dealer for a free comparable replacement.
