Goodyear G159

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is conducting a voluntary recall for Goodyear G159 Tires, size 275/70R22.5, manufactured between 1996 and 2003.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.

Recall Details

While there is no safety defect in the G159 275/70R22.5 tire and few, if any, remain on the road, Goodyear – in cooperation with NHTSA – is initiating a voluntary recall of the tire to address risks shown to occur when the tire was used in an underinflated or overloaded condition on Class A Motorhomes.

This tire hasn’t been made since 2003, it consistently met Goodyear’s demanding safety standards, and we have not received an injury claim related to the tire’s use on a Class A motorhome in more than 14 years.

However, the RV manufacturers who selected this tire for their motorhomes, had responsibility for determining and communicating appropriate load standards to their customers, and would have normally been responsible for vehicle-specific safety communications are no longer in business. Considering that unusual circumstance, Goodyear will conduct a free tire replacement campaign, including extensive outreach efforts to replace any tire that might still exist on these vehicles. Safety and product quality are and always have been Goodyear’s top priority.
