Goodyear recalls Wrangler Silent Armor tires

February 26, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
There's a warning for drivers. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is recalling tens of thousands of tires designed for trucks, vans and SUVs.

The company says it's recalling six versions of its Wrangler Silent Armor tires made in 2009. They say the tire treads could separate from the tire and cause accidents or cause a tire failure.

Goodyear does say the separation would most likely only occur under "severe usage conditions."

Goodyear will replace the tires for free. The recall affects about 40,000 tires and will start by March 22.
