BF Goodrich Tire Defects

BF Goodrich Tire Defects & Recalls

In mid-August of 2015, BF Goodrich Tires announced that approximately 129,000 tires sold in the United States, Canada, and Mexico were being recalled. It is estimated that close to 104,000 of the tires recalled were sold in the United States.

While monitoring the performance of their tires, BF Goodrich noticed that certain tires experienced a sudden loss of air pressure. This was caused by a rupture of the sidewall in the bead area. If a driver uses these tires, they face the potential risk of losing control of their vehicle or crashing the vehicle.

The tires under recall are usually found on:

  • Small RVs
  • Full-sized heavy-duty vans
  • Three-quarter ton trucks
  • One-ton pickup trucks

The recall was reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and it also lists eight commercial light truck tire sizes that were produced under the following product names:

  • BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain T/A
  • BF Goodrich Commercial T/A All-Season 2
  • BF Goodrich Commercial T/A All-Season

Eight Different Tires Recalled

There are eight different BF Goodrich tires involved in the recall:

  • LT 275/70R18 125/122Q
  • LT 275/70R18 125/122R
  • LT 275/70R18 125/122R
  • LT 275/65R18 123/120R
  • LT 235/80R17 120/117R
  • LT 265/70R17 121/118R
  • LT 245/75R17 121/118R
  • LT 245/70R17 119/116R

At the time of the recall, BF Goodrich advised all consumers to remove any of the above tires from their vehicles and noted that they would receive a similar tire at no cost.

What to Do During a Tire Recall

If you are not sure if your tire is under recall, the first step is to call the tire manufacturer. Their customer service team will be able to advise you of any recalls and how to replace the tire.

How to Report a Defective Tire

If you believe that your tire is defective, you can submit a Vehicle Complaint Form at Before you begin filling out the form, you will need to know the brand, the line, the size, and the DOT Tire Identification Number.

If the manufacturer of a tire will not replace your recalled tires within a reasonable amount of time, or if they attempt to charge you for new tires, you can call the Vehicle Safety Hotline at (855) 971-1662 and file a report with the Secretary of Transportation.
