Potential Number of Units Affected 10,380

Summary. Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations (Bridgestone) is recalling certain Firestone Transforce HT, size LT275/70R18 with DOT code VN15TH71821and Transforce AT, size LT275/70R18 with DOT code VN15TR91821.


The tires were manufactured with an incorrect inner liner compound, which could cause increased inner liner permeability or cracking, resulting in belt separation. Belt separation could lead to loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.


Bridgestone will notify owners and replace the affected tires with a comparable Bridgestone or Firestone brand tire, free of charge.


Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed April 1, 2022. Owners may contact Bridgestone customer service at 1-800-847-3272.
