Yokohama Tire Announces Voluntary Recall of 6,125 Commercial Tires

/Commercial News
SANTA ANA, CA – (Dec. 16, 2022) – 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.
The recall, initiated in accordance with NHTSA regulations, was issued
because the tires may have been manufactured with an improperly
manufactured compound. There is potential for a portion of the tread to
separate from the casing of the tire increasing the risk of a crash.
