Tyres under investigation

Safety regulators in Detroit, USA, are looking into concerns about the G159 tyre for motorhomes from Goodyear.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that it began its investigation following the release of legal information and confidential settlement agreements.

Around 40,000 tyres were sold from 1996 to 2003.  Two crashes have been alleged and Goodyear has reported nine claims to the agency involving one death and 13 injuries.
