    Pat, I dont think it applied to yours. It was only for:

    1991-2000 Ford Explorer
    1991-2001 Ford Explorer Sport
    1996-2000 Mecury Mountaineer
    1991-2000 Ford Ranger
    1991-1994 Ford F-Series
    1991-1994 Ford Bronco
    2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
    1991-1994 Mazada Navajo
    1991-1994 Mazada B Series

    and they were also for the 15" size.

    Yep there is it is a voluntary recall and only the 265 75 r16 load D (only load D) tires they can be found on the ford supper duty fords and I got a set on the Excursion I called and I do get 5 new tires and because it is voluntary I must stay in their family brand of tire ? I was thinking of 285 75 r16 load E. But is their a different tire in the Bridgestone firestone line I think even Dayton is in the family this is the part I was hopeing you could help with

    Sorry dont know much about Firestone tires so cant give you any recomendations, maybe go to the dealer and look through the catalogs?? My 00 Silverado had Firestones Wilderness on it new, they were worthless in the mud/snow but excellent on dry pavement, I got 65,000 miles out of them.

    Glad you get new tires /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My bro that works for Firestone said you can also take it to the Ford dealership and they will put on Pirelli tires.
