Jeff Yea, all that Matt outlined above with the Bridgestone advertisement adding: 'The tyres covered by this voluntary recall will be replaced at no charge to the consumer' So perhaps anyone running these tyres may be getting a new set all round!!! David

David/Matt Thanks guys. The only reason I asked was that I was nearly going with them but stuck with the BFG's I knew and liked. A new set of tyres all round would have been somewhat of a bonus though!! Regards Jeff

I replaced my tyres on the F250 with the same size as the recall 285 R 16 back in May this year, but they don't have the same DOT number so no luck with another set of tyres. I think that you will find that the Bridgestone tyres that BTi have fitted to vans will be the smaller 265 R16 that most Landcruisers, Patrols and F250's run as standard, so this recall is unlikely to affect any BTi owners.
