Goodyear is taking action to exchange about 40,000 Wrangler Silent Armor tires, in six sizes, sold in the United States and Canada.
The tires, in six sizes, were made between March and May of 2009. The sizes include: LT235/80R17, LT245/75R17, LT265/70R17, LT275/70R18, LT285/70R17 and LT325/60R18.
The replacement tires were sold through a variety of locations. The tires were predominantly made for application on pickup trucks. Goodyear estimates approximately 27,000 of these tires might still be in use.
Consumers can have their tires checked at any Goodyear retail location, or at their original point of purchase. The company will replace these tires with a Wrangler Silent Armor tire in the same size.
Recalled tires will be replaced free of charge, including mounting, balancing, and taxes. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your authorized Goodyear tire dealer or Goodyear Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-321-2136.
Consumers should remember that all tires need to be checked regularly and ensure they are properly inflated. In general, statistics show the vast majority of tire failures are related to tires that are used while underinflated, overloaded, poorly maintained or have suffered impact damage.
