What's the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus P255/60R19 tires with DOT codes 2820 through 3120
- Firestone Destination LE3 255/60R19 tires with DOT codes 2420 through 2820
These tires may have been manufactured with a small pinhole in the upper sidewall of the outboard side of the tire, NHTSA said. This problem causes the tires to fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles."
"Tires containing a pinhole may slowly leak air, and if undetected or ignored, the continued loss of air may increase the risk of a vehicle crash," NHTSA said.
Bridgestone is notifying owners and dealers will replace the tires with a free comparable replacement.
This recall began in December 2020.
