Goodyear Recall

Goodyear has recalled 40,914 Wrangler Silent Armor tires manufactured in 2009. The recall is due to the potential of the tread separating from the rest of the tire. Goodyear claims that it only occurs under “severe conditions," but this claim is in dispute. What is not in dispute is that tread separations are dangerous and can cause a vehicle to roll-over. In fact, last year two people in Texas died in an accident involving these tires.

27,000 of the defective tires are believed to be still in service. The tires subject to the recall are:

Tire Brand Name / Tire Line / Tire Size: Production Dates: GOODYEAR / WRANGLER SILENT ARMOR / LT285/70R17 LRD MAR 01, 2009 – MAY 31, 2009 GOODYEAR / WRANGLER SILENT ARMOR / LT245/75R17 LRE MAR 01, 2009 – MAY 31, 2009 GOODYEAR / WRANGLER SILENT ARMOR / LT275/70R18 LRE MAR 01, 2009 – MAY 31, 2009 GOODYEAR / WRANGLER SILENT ARMOR / LT265/70R17 LRE MAR 01, 2009 – MAY 31, 2009 GOODYEAR / WRANGLER SILENT ARMOR / LT325/60R18 LRE MAR 01, 2009 – MAY 31, 2009 GOODYEAR / WRANGLER SILENT ARMOR / LT235/80R17 LRE MAR 01, 2009 – MAY 31, 2009

If you have one of the defective tires, Goodyear will replace it for free.
