Goodyear Tire Recalls and Defects

Goodyear Tire Recalls & Defects

In October of 2016, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company issued a voluntary recall of nearly 1,650 commercial vehicle tires. Goodyear determined that certain tires contained a defect that happened during part of the manufacturing process that resulted in incomplete adhesion of the tire, which could lead to partial tread separation. Tread separation can cause tire pressure to decrease rapidly, which increases the chance of property damage, injury, and death.

Reporting Potentially Defective Tires

If your tire is officially recalled, you should be notified by the manufacturer, and the tire should be replaced at no additional expense. If you have a complaint about your tire and it is not recalled, it is important that you report the issue so that your brand and line of tires can be investigated further.

Your first course of action is to call the National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA) or file an online complaint with their online website, Consumers may also want to file a complaint with the Center for Auto Safety (CAS), an organization that researches automotive issues, including defective tires.

It is also a good idea to share your complaint with the website This free website allows consumers and law firms to report and investigate complaints and claims.
