Yokohama Tire has notified NHTSA that it is voluntarily recalling nineteen sizes of commercial tires that were manufactured at Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Mississippi between January 12, 2020 and February 15, 2020. A total of 4209 tires are being recalled.
The recall, initiated in accordance with NHTSA regulations, was issued because the tires may have been manufactured with an out-of-specification compound. There is a possible risk of tire damage due to material detachment inside the tire. This could lead to a tire disablement and an increased risk of loss of vehicle control.
Yokohama will replace free of charge any tires subject to this recall with tires of comparable value. This replacement includes the cost of mounting and balancing the replacement tires. If a single tire needs to be replaced, Yokohama will allow both tires on a steer axle to be replaced with new Yokohama tires. In the case of a dual assembly, Yokohama will allow both tires in the dual assembly to be replaced with new Yokohama tires.
If you choose to replace your tires subject to this recall with another manufacturer’s tires, instead of receiving Yokohama replacement tires, Yokohama will offer a pro-rated tread depth credit of the original purchase price.
