Yokohama Tire (Canada) Inc.’s affiliate company Yokohama Tire Corporation has notified NHTSA it is voluntarily recalling two sizes of commercial tires. The 295/75R22.5 TY517 MC² and BluEarth 109L in the same size were manufactured at Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Mississippi between May 29 2022 and June 4, 2022. A total 68 TY517 MC² and 3 BluEarth 109L tires are believed to be affected, but out of an abundance of caution 6,125 tires are being recalled.
Of the above 6125 tires, 430 units of BluEarth 109L were shipped to Canada. On December 19, 2022 Yokohama Tire (Canada) notified Transport Canada and will recall the above quantity of subject tires in Canada. A total of up to 3 BluEarth 109L tires are believed to be affected, but out of an abundance of caution 430 tires are being recalled.
The recall, initiated in accordance with Transport Canada regulations, was issued because the tires may have been manufactured with an improperly manufactured compound. There is a possible risk of the tread separating from the tire. This could lead to tire disablement and generate flying tire debris.
