Yokohama Casing Compound Recall
Yokohama Tire Corporation has determined that a safety defect exists in certain Yokohama Commercial tires. These tires were manufactured at Yokohama Tire Manufacturing Mississippi from January 12, 2020 to February 15, 2020.
Reason For This Recall
The recall is because of a manufacturing anomaly. There is a possible risk of tire damage due to material detachment inside the tire.

These tires were manufactured between January 12, 2020 and February 15, 2020 at Yokohama Tire Manufacturing Mississippi.

Yokohama will replace free of charge any tires subject to this recall with tires of comparable value. This replacement includes the cost of mounting and balancing the replacement tires.

In the case of a dual assembly, Yokohama will allow both tires in the dual assembly to be replaced with new Yokohama tires.
If you choose to replace your tires subject to this recall with another manufacturer’s tires, instead of receiving Yokohama replacement tires, Yokohama will offer a pro-rated tread depth credit of the original purchase price.
