Yokohama Recalls Tire for Separation Risk

By Staff Writer December 03, 2018

Yokohama Tire Corp. is recalling certain Yokohama RY023 tires, size 295/75R22.5 (14G), that have DOT date code 2318.


The rubber compound may be incorrect, possibly resulting in the tread separating from the casing. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 119, "New Pneumatic Tires-Other than Passenger Cars." If the tread separates, the driver may experience a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.


Yokohama has notified owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the tires, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began Nov. 28.
