Goodyear Tire Recalls

Tires are the only things between you and your passengers and the road. You depend on them to get your vehicle to your destination. If those tires are defective and subject to tread separation or tearing, blowouts, design flaws, made with improper materials or the manufacturing process is questionable, you may be involved in an accident and sustain serious injuries or die in the crash.

Properly designed and manufactured tires are a crucial component of being safe on the roads. However, not all tires are created equal and well-known tire manufacturer, Goodyear Tire, has been in the limelight for multiple recalls over the years.

Goodyear Tires Notable Recalls

  • 2012 — recalled 41,000 Wrangler Silent Armor tires in six sizes, sold in the United States and Canada for tires that may separate or tear at the tread. Goodyear admitted that tread separation in light-truck tires, Load Range E, were linked to 120 injuries and 15 deaths. The tire sizes included tires manufactured between March and May of 2009 in sizes LT235/80R17, LT245/75R17
  • 2015 — recalled 48,512 Fortera HL P255/65R18 1095 in one size only sold in Canada and the United States. These tires were manufactured between November 10, 2014, and January 10, 2015. A test tire showed cracking in the tread when visually inspected. Tread cracking may cause tread chunking, vibration and noise. This increases the risk of an accident. Goodyear replaced these tires.

Tire Defects — The Causes

There are numerous things that may cause tire defects. However in the vast majority of causes, the defects are the end result of a design flaw or shoddy manufacturing. Poor manufacturing may include tire contamination from sawdust, moisture or rust; the use of outdated or ineffective adhesives or other materials and improper temperatures when tire materials are “cooked.”
