So what do they give you if you have one?
- If it's prorated based on the remaining service life, they will probably give you a $0.25 coupon off your next $250 tire (kind of stealth marketing, as they will make plenty of profit to more than cover the "recall"?
- If it's a brand new tire, could be a good deal if you have the old ones out in the barn that you didn't pay to have the dump take off your hands.

Reminds me of the recall on the water heater in our 1979 boat. At the time the boat was 30yrs old, they sent me a brand new water heater under recall to replace the old rusted out unit that I had bypassed (nothing related to the recall).

Despite being discontinued, it is possible that these tires can be found for purchase on online marketplaces. It is illegal under federal law to sell recalled tires or other motor vehicle equipment.

NHTSA opened a defect investigation into G159 tires based on claim and complaint data obtained from private litigation alleging that Goodyear G159 tires installed on Class A motor homes failed in service, causing deaths or personal injuries.

Drivers with impacted tires are encouraged to obtain a free replacement from a Goodyear Commercial Tire and Service Network location or authorized Goodyear commercial truck tire dealer immediately. Visit goodyearrvtires.com or goodyeartrucktires.com to locate the nearest retailer or call 866-353-3847.

Goodyear is offering $500 in exchange for impacted tires that have not been fitted on an RV. Please contact Goodyear Consumer Relations at 800-592-3267 for information on the exchange process.
