This is not a safety recall in accordance with the safety act. however, it is deemed a safety improvement campaign by the agency. pre-1992 models of the eligible 15-passenger vans may have been originally equipped with lt23585r16 lre tires. the sidewall stamping reads, "tread 4 plies (2 polyester cord + 2 steel cord)." this replacement program is limited to tires installed on 15-passenger vans (with or without the fifth row seat.)
If a tire on such a van were to experience a tread separation, there is a possibility for loss of control and a crash.
Goodyear will notify its customers and replace for free its earlier design lt245/75r16 load range e tires with its latest design, goodyear brand load range e tires (with 6 plies). owners of these vans are also eligible for free goodyear brand replacement tires with the latest design. owner notification is expected to begin in feb/march 2002. owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact goodyear customer service at 1-800-321-2136.
