Kelly Armorsteel KDM I
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is conducting a voluntary recall for Kelly Armorsteel KDM I Tires, size 11R22.5 LRH, manufactured in week 34 of 2019.
If further assistance is required for any reason, including difficulty in obtaining free replacement tires, please contact the Customer Assistance Center, D728 at 200 Innovation Way, Akron, Ohio 44316, or by calling toll free 1-800-592-3267.
Summary of Recall
Certain Kelly Armorsteel KDM I tires, size 11R22.5 LR H, from week 3419, may have been manufactured with the date code portion of the tire identification number (TIN) not meeting the minimum regulatory height requirement, making it hard to read the date code on those tires. Only these specific tires with noncompliant TIN (date code portion) are part of this recall. This noncompliance may prevent consumers from making informed decisions related to the age of the tire which may lead to prolonged usage which may increase the risk of a crash.
Contact the Goodyear retailer where you purchased the tires or contact your nearest authorized Goodyear retailer. To find the nearest retailer, go to goodyear.com and enter your location information in the Find A Store area or call 1-800-466-3932. The retailer will inspect the tires and let you know if they fall within the DOT date range described above and contain the hard to read date code, and therefore qualify for replacement as part of this recall.

How to find your DOT Number
