NHTSA Recall ID Number :​
22T002
Synopsis :​
Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations (Bridgestone) is recalling certain Firestone Transforce HT, size LT275/70R18 with DOT code VN15TH71821 and 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.

rip Bridgestone/Firestone

friends dont let friends buy them
With the exception of Bridgestone Blizzak winter tires. Those are almost without question one of the best winter tires on the market. They've won most every winter tire shootout for 10 plus years. They have a propietary rubber compound that's pretty superior to most others out there. I've ran a set on my honda civic before. Turned the thing into an ice/snow goat. That's the #1 recommended winter tire for the evo. I had the WS80's they're on to the WS90's now. Just because Bridgestone bought Firestone doesn't mean all their tires are crap.

There's always going to be an exception to the rule. Kinda like Nissans and the GT-R.

But no, Bridgestone was crap before buying Firestone and Firestone has always been crap. The Blizzaks are the bright shining diamond amongst the darkness.

Surprising. Continental has a good rep. Those are scooter tires. They probably contracted out someone who dropped the ball.
