Yokohama Tire Corporation has notified NHTSA it is voluntarily recalling two sizes of commercial tires.

The 295/75R22.5 TY517 MC² and BluEarth 109L in the same size were manufactured at Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Mississippi between May 29, 2022, and June 4, 2022. A total of 68 TY517 MC² and 3 BluEarth 109L tires are believed to be affected, but out of an abundance of caution, 6,125 tires are being recalled.

The recall, initiated in accordance with NHTSA regulations, was issued because the tires may have been manufactured with an improperly manufactured compound. There is potential for a portion of the tread to separate from the casing of the tire increasing the risk of a crash.

A small number of tires that fall within the date range and subsequent parameters of the voluntary recall were shipped to Canada. Transport Canada has been notified and Yokohama is pursuing the collection of tires in both Canada and the U.S.
