BF Goodrich and Uniroyal Recalls Tires

  A tire recall exists for LT235/85R16 and LT245/75R16 tires that come with NSN 2610-01-148-1635 (BF Goodrich) and NSN 2610-01-439-6224 (Uniroyal) and were manufactured between April 2010 and July 2012.  Check to see if you have them because they’ll need to be replaced.  Otherwise, tread loss or rapid air loss resulting from tread belt separation could occur.  That increases the risk of a crash! 

     The recalled tires belong on the M116A2 light cargo trailer, M101A2 cargo trailer, M1008 commercial utility cargo vehicle (CUCV), M1008A1 CUCV, M1010 CUCV, the CUCV ambulance, M1028 CUCV, M1028A1 CUCV, M1028A3 CUCV and a variety of other commercial vehicles and light engineer equipment. 

    Use this table and the DOT code on your tire to identify these recalled tires.  The last four dashes in the DOT sequence column indicate the DOT production periods.
