Goodyear Tire Recall

Goodyear Issues Tire Recall, Warns Of Tread Separation

NEW YORK (AP) — Goodyear is recalling six versions of its Wrangler Silent Armor tires over concerns that the tread could separate from the tire and cause accidents.

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. said Saturday that the separation could happen under what it called “severe usage conditions.” Goodyear says the separated tread could strike the car and damage it or cause a tire failure.

Goodyear says the recall affects about 40,000 tires made in 2009, including 27,000 in service. It says it will replace the recalled tires with new ones.

The tires are designed for trucks, vans and SUVs. Goodyear says it will notify owners and replace the tires for free. The recall will start by March 22.

Before this thread gets too far off track , I posted this not only for Ranger owners , but the fact that many of us have more than one vehicle and this notice may apply to those folks that do have these tires on another truck , suv, whatever.
Lets try to keep on topic , not wander off on what tires are better, more reliable, ect....

It sound wonderful. I think, this is the best recall for tires and also vehicles. Because, the tires are designed for cars, trucks, vans and SUVs. I hope, it will be very beneficial.

Maybe hit up the GY website, give them a call maybe on a 1-800 number. Or I would imagine that any authorized GY retailer should be able to help you.
