Bridgestone Tire Recalls
The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) is an office within the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). ODI conducts defect investigations and administers safety recalls to support the NHTSA's mission to improve safety on our Nation's highways. NHTSA is authorized to order manufacturers to recall and repair Tire or items of motor vehicle equipment when ODI investigations indicate that they contain serious safety defects in their design, construction, or performance. ODI also monitors the adequacy of manufacturers' recall campaigns. Before initiating an investigation, ODI carefully reviews the body of consumer complaints and other available data to determine whether a defect trend may exist.

Summary: Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC (Bridgestone) is recalling certain Firestone H63000 315/80R22.5 18 ply tires manufactured January 2012 through August 2013 and sold to customers in Guam.

Consequence: A sidewall bulge may result in a tire deflation and subsequent tire failure which increases the risk of a crash.
Remedy: The recall began January 21, 2014. Owners may contact Bridgestone at 1-617-633-3026.
