Every year, thousands of car tires are recalled for safety reasons – but many affected motorists never find out or, even if they do, they simply don’t do anything about it. Only around 20 percent of recalled tires are ever returned. Although there’s a possibility you may get a recall notice from your tire supplier or manufacturer, you probably should be more proactive in keeping track of recalls. On way to do this is via the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which has a searchable database of tire recalls. Visit http://tinyurl.com/NHTSA-tires. You can also sign up for email alerts. The other key action is to register your tires with the manufacturer when you buy them.
We were never notified of tire recalls and have witnessed, first hand, the damage bad tires can cause. Before you put those new treads on your family’s car, visit the website. If you do not need tires now, save the website or this blog to visit when the time comes. It could save a life.
