Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire (BFNAT) has announced U.S. recalls of light truck/SUV and motorcycle tires.
In both cases, the recalls are because of incorrect sidewall markings. BFNAT said that no “structural or performance safety issues” exist with either product.

The 4,202 bias motorcycle tires in question are missing part of their DOT numbers, as well as the maximum load rating, corresponding inflation pressure markings, the tube-type markings and the stamping indicating the ply cord material and the number of plies.
