Bridgestone Corporation recalled 42 Steeltex radial tyres on Wednesday for the same type of defect that led to a massive recall of its Wilderness tyres, Reuters reported, citing the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. According to the news agency, the NHTSA announced the recall of Steelex tyres manufactured between March 9 and March 15 because of potential tread separation defects that "can possibly lead to a vehicle crash, resulting in serious injury or death."
