Bridgestone America is recalling certain Bridgestone R192 Truck/Bus Tires, Size 275/70R22.5 used on intra-city transit buses. These tires feature a sidewall wear indicator that is used by technicians to monitor sidewall wear. The specified depth of the subject tire’s dimples may result in exposed body ply cord.
Over time, this condition could result in the deterioration of the body ply cord, creating the potential for air loss at the location of the dimple. Air loss in the tire will increase the risk of a crash. Bridgestone will replace the affected tires free of charge. The safety recall began on June 27, 2010. Owners may contact Bridgestone toll-free at 1-800-342-6453 or visit its website at www.bridgestoneamericas.com.
