VOLUNTARY RECALL

 

 

YOKOHAMA TIRE (CANADA) INC.

VOLUNTARY RECALL INFORMATION – iceGUARD iG51v

Yokohama is conducting a voluntary recall on one size of iceGUARD iG51v (215/70R16 100T) manufactured at Yokohama’s plant in Shinshiro, Japan during the month of June 2016. The affected DOT Serial Number/Tire Identification Number is:  FDYVPFL2416

The voluntary recall, initiated in accordance with Transport Canada regulations, was issued due to the possibility of the existence of irregular tread rubber in some tires. Under certain limited circumstances, this irregular tread rubber can potentially create a condition in which tire imbalance and vehicle instability could cause a safety risk. 

This campaign applies to 1,631 units of iceGUARD iG51v.  It is estimated that the number of tires that may be affected are 94 units of the 1,631 total units.  

Customers who think they might have purchased one of the specified tires are invited to have a free inspection at the dealer where they purchased their tires. Any affected tires will be replaced at no cost.
