When you purchase new tires who is going to let you know if there is a recall? No one unless you register your tires. Every tire has a DOT number stamped on the side. DOT stands for the Department of Transportation. If your service center doesn’t register the tires you need too – they are supposed to give you the information – see this link – Tire Purchaser Rights Certificate – It is Federal Law! See Code of Federal Regulations Title 49 Part 574. DOT uses these numbers for recalls. The manufacturer’s identification mark, tire size, and the date when the tire was manufactured are encoded in the DOT number…so if there is a problem and a recall is issued, you can find out about it. The Rubber Manufacturers Association estimates that only 10% of tires are registered. To increase this number, dealers now have the option to register tires electronically – read this News Release.
