BFGoodrich Tires is recalling approximately 20,000 (total for Canada and the United States) BFGoodrich Land Terrain tires, (size P235/75R15) after the company discovered, through its quality inspection process, that affected tires were produced using two molds provided by a supplier that did not have the required tread wear indicators (“wear bars”). The issue does not affect the performance of the tires. To date, there have been no reported issues or complaints.
“These tires meet all performance criteria, but the decision was made that we must recall the affected tires because they were produced without the required tread wear indicators,” said Michel Default, quality director for BFGoodrich Tire Manufacturing. “The affected tires were produced at our Opelika (Alabama, U.S.) facility from February 29th to August 19th of 2004. The issue has been corrected and consumers who purchased the affected tires will receive new tires that have the required tread wear indicators free of charge. The recalled tires have Department of Transportation tire identification numbers that begin with DOT AN HL B411 and end with the last four digits 0904 through 3304 and mold numbers: 40381 and 40382. Tires manufactured outside of these DOT weeks for the specific tire and size are not affected. The five-digit mold number is located on the inner sidewall of the tire just above the wheel rim.
