While there is no safety defect in the G159 275/70R22.5 tire and few, if any, remain on the road, Goodyear – in cooperation with NHTSA – is initiating a voluntary recall of the tire to address risks shown to occur when the tire was used in an underinflated or overloaded condition on Class A Motorhomes.
This tire hasn’t been made since 2003, it consistently met Goodyear’s demanding safety standards, and we have not received an injury claim related to the tire’s use on a Class A motorhome in more than 14 years.
However, the RV manufacturers who selected this tire for their motorhomes, had responsibility for determining and communicating appropriate load standards to their customers, and would have normally been responsible for vehicle-specific safety communications are no longer in business. Considering that unusual circumstance, Goodyear will conduct a free tire replacement campaign, including extensive outreach efforts to replace any tire that might still exist on these vehicles. Safety and product quality are and always have been Goodyear’s top priority.
