    NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12T003
    Synopsis:
    Goodyear is recalling certain Wrangler Silent Armor tires, sizes LT235/80R17 LRE, LT325/60R18 LRE, LT275/70R18 LRE, LT265/70R17 LRE, LT245/75R17 LRE, and LT285/70R17 LRD, produced from the 9th week of 2009, through the 22nd week of 2009 (March 31st through May 31st). These tires may experience a partial tread area separation under certain severe usage conditions. Partial tread separation could lead to vehicle damage when the separated tread strikes the vehicle. A tread separation could also cause a tire failure that could result in a motor vehicle crash. Goodyear will notify owners and replace the tires free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before March 22, 2012. Owners may contact Goodyear at 1-800-592-3267.

    For more information for this particular recall, please go to 12T003.
