Goodyear Tire has recalled 18 Goodyear Eagle Rs-A, size P235/55R18 99V, manufactured during the week of January 7, 2008, which fail to conform to the labeling requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard No. 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires For Light Vehicles.” These tires have the correct full tin on one sidewall but do not contain the correct partial tin on the other sidewall. The purpose of the standard is to establish specific tire dimensions, test requirements, and labeling requirements, and to define tire load ratings. Goodyear was to notify owners and replace the noncompliant tires free of charge.
The recall began on February 10, 2009. Owners may contact Goodyear consumer relations toll-free at 1-800-321-2136. The manufacturer’s petition which requested that NHTSA determine this FMVSS noncompliance does not create an unreasonable risk to motor vehicle safety was denied on January 13, 2009. Therefore, this manufacturer was obligated to conduct an owner notification and remedy campaign. Customers may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
