BFGoodrich is recalling approximately commercial 129,000 tires that were sold in North America, with 104,000 of those sold in the United States.
The tires are primarily found on commercial light trucks, as well as full-sized heavy-duty vans, small RVs and some ¾ and one ton pickup trucks, according to the company.
The recall, which has been reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, includes eight specific commercial light truck tire sizes that were produced under the following three product names: BFGoodrich Commercial T/A All-Season, BFGoodrich Commercial T/A All-Season 2 and BFGoodrich Ruggen Terrain T/A.
A limited number of these tires experienced a rapid loss of air pressure “due to a rupture of the sidewall in the bead area under severe usage conditions.” BFGoodrich says this can result in a potential risk of loss of control or a crash.
There have been no injuries or fatalities reported as of yet as a result of the problem.
