NASHVILLE, TN – Bridgestone Americas has issued a voluntary safety recall for some of its Firestone FS561 tires sold in the U.S. and Canada between April 2015 and January 2016.
The recall is for FS561 tires in size 255/70R22.5 and only those tires installed for trailer applications.
Bridgestone says the voluntary recall was initiated by an elevated number of warranty adjustment returns for tread separation and/or detachment on tires in the severe service trailer application.
An estimated 36,000 tires are subject to the recall.
Owners of tires subject to this recall are urged to contact their authorized Bridgestone and Firestone dealer or company-owned service center to arrange verification and replacement.
