A List of All Tires Recalled in 2018 and 2019
When purchasing a vehicle or buying new tires for your vehicle, you should ensure that the tires have not been recalled by the manufacturer. A tire recall is typically issued by the manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). If a tire manufacturer does not issue a timely product recall, they put motorists at risk for a serious car accident, and they may be held liable for their actions.

Continue reading for personal injury lawyer Rick Morrison’s helpful list of tires recalled in 2018 and 2019.
What is a Tire Recall?
Tire recalls typically occur when a certain brand of tire poses a risk to motorists or is deemed to not meet the suggested safety standards. As mentioned, a recall means that the tire manufacturer or the NHTSA determined that a certain type of tire was unsafe and that consumers should avoid driving with the tires and return them to the manufacturer. For example, a tire manufacturer may have created a product that is prone to tire sidewall blowouts.
If a manufacturer is alerted to a tire defect, they must rectify the issue. This can mean that the tire manufacturer has to repair or replace the tires, refund the money used to purchase the tires, and in extreme cases repurchase the car that had defective tires. This service should be provided to you free of charge.
It is important to have your vehicle registered as this will allow manufacturers to alert you of a tire recall. Additionally, a safety recall notice is usually sent by mail, so it is important to ensure that your mailing address is up-to-date. If you receive a tire recall notice, you should take your vehicle to your dealership immediately. If the dealership does not want to repair your vehicle for free, you should file a complaint with the NHTSA explaining your interactions with the dealer.
