Cool Tire recalls

I just purchased a 86 31' sovereign with goodyear tires . I was told that there had been a recall on some of them. I was met with a blank stare at my local dealer. Does any one know how or where to get info on recalls. Thanks

Check with the Consumer Product Safety Commissions Web site. Obviously you will need to identify your tires and the date of production (stamped on the sidewall) to find out if there are recalls.

Here is the link to the site.

Good luck in your search.

The tires in question were the Goodyear Marathon ST225/75R-15 load range D that were made in the mid to late 1990's. According to Goodyear, there never was a recall on the tires. You can call them at their 800 number and get the "claims dept" for further details. The replacement tires now have a circled "s" after the word "Marathon" on the sidewall.

I think you will find that Goodyear has not had a "recall".

The 5th wheel trailer industry is making these behemoths you see on the road and they spec a tire that is small due to trailer height concerns and also they don't want to pay for a steel/steel radial truck tire with 80psi inflation. Also, everyone is towing with turbo diesels at 75 miles per hour. The end result is that there have been a number of tire failures on original equipment tires. I think you will find that Goodyear has been making sales concessions to people with relatively new trailers that have experienced tire failures.

I have been told that Goodyear put a nylon overlay belt into the construction about 2 years ago which would make the new construction more desireable than the old but, if your tire is the ST225/75r15 LRD and you keep it inflated to the 65psi, you should not have a problem.

My trailer is a 1987 with tires that are nearly two years old. I will start watching them close for sidewall cracking as they approach 7 years old. My 29' loaded is at about 75% of the sidewall max load rating and I would think your 31' is about the same.

Thanks everybody,goes to show you "the more mids the better ". My tires are less than 2 years old so I won't worry and will just check them carefully as allways.
