A story appeared on the Tire Business Web site yesterday, April 17 and early April 18 concerning what was called another recall of tires by Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. — this time involving 93,000 Firestone Firehawk GTA-02 radials, size P205/55R16 89H.
Although the information in the story was accurate, unfortunately it referred to a Firehawk tire recall that Nashville, Tenn.-based Bridgestone/Firestone announced in late February.
Tire Business published the information after receiving a notification from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which sends out an updated list of recalls on a monthly basis.
However, a spokeswoman for Bridgestone/Firestone said there is not another recall of the Firehawk tire line underway.
We apologize for the error.
