Steeltex Tires Being Recalled

Feb 27, 2004 | AP Bridgestone/Firestone announced a recall Thursday of about 490,000 Steeltex tires linked to sport utility vehicle crashes that killed five people.

The move heads off an in-depth investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration into the Steeltex Radial A/T LT265/75R16 Load Range D tires, which have been linked to six crashes, three of which involved fatalities.

The tires manufactured in Joliette, Quebec were made for use on Ford Excursions from 2000 to 2002 and some early 2003 models.

A current lawsuit accuses the tire manufacturer of using substandard materials to make several Steeltex models. A hearing is scheduled next month to determine whether the suit should become a class-action case.
