Summary

Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC (BATO) is recalling certain Firestone Destination LE3 255/60R19 tires with DOT codes 2420 through 2820 and Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus P255/60R19 tires with DOT codes 2820 through 3120.

Remedy

BATO will notify owners, and based on the date code and press identification number of the tire, dealers will replace the tires with a comparable replacement free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 18, 2020. Owners may contact BATO customer service at 1-800-847-3272.
