Missing Date Code on Sidewall/FMVSS 139

Missing TIN information can make it difficult for owner to identify the tire in the event of a recall, potentially increasing the risk of driving with a recalled tire which could result in a crash.

 

Summary

Vogue Tyre & Rubber Co. (Vogue) is recalling certain Signature V tires, sizes 245/40R20, 235/45R17, 225/50R17, 225/45R17, 235/55R17, 245/45R17 and 235/65R18, and Signature V SCT tires, sizes 235/65R18, 285/45R22, 275/55R20. These tires have incomplete Tire Identification number (TIN) codes on the intended outboard sidewalls in that they are missing date codes. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles.”
