Transport Canada Number: BFGOODRICH 2015-01
August 10, 2015
Subject: SAFETY RECALL NOTICE
Dear BFGoodrich® Dealer,
This notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of Transport Canada.
Michelin North America (Canada) Inc.(“MNACI”), of which BFGoodrich® is one of its tire brands,
has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists with certain BFGoodrich
Commercial T/A All-Season, BFGoodrich Commercial T/A All-Season 2 and BFGoodrich
Rugged Terrain T/A tires and are included in this safety recall.
Approximately 6,400 of the recalled tires were sold in the Canadian market. These tires are
primarily found on commercial light trucks, as well as full-sized heavy-duty vans, small RVs and
some 3/4 and one ton pick-up trucks.
MNACI has observed that a limited number of these tires have experienced a rapid loss of air
pressure due to a rupture of the sidewall in the bead area under severe usage conditions. This
can result in a potential risk of loss of vehicle control or vehicle crash. At this time there have
been no injuries or fatalities reported.
You are receiving this letter because our records indicate that you may have purchased one or
more of the recalled tires.
MNACI requests your assistance with identifying, replacing and returning the affected tires.
The chart on page 2 provides the Tire Description, DOT (Department of Transportation)
sequence identifier and DOT production periods of the manufacturing populations which contain
the recalled tires. The DOT markings can be found on the sidewall just above the wheel flange.
