Firestone sets up tire recall help line
By SCOTT BUTKI / Staff Writer
Tri-State residents who own some of the 6.5 million Bridgestone/Firestone tires being voluntarily recalled, can start making plans to have them replaced, a Firestone spokeswoman said.
The recall covers 3.8 million size P235/75R15 Firestone radial ATX and radial ATX tires and 2.7 million Wilderness AT (all-terrain) tires.
Drivers who have the Wilderness tires should make sure they have the code VD because only that type is being recalled, said a company spokeswoman who did not want to be named.
If you own the tires being recalled, call the customer service number at 1-800-465-1904, the spokeswoman said. That number will provide phone numbers for the closest companies replacing the tires, she said.
