I’ve just become aware that there is a recall for the 19” Goodyear tyres if you car had those fitted at the factory.

I called and booked in as it a pretty serious safety issue. The inside walls can split and over on the ID3 forum there is a picture of members tyres which have it and it looks bloody dangerous!

There is also a recall for the bonnet splitter pin and that’s being done at the same time.

You’re welcome. FYI this is what tyre looks like, from the ID3 forum :(

I understand that Continental bought Goodyear so that would explain it. I entered my vin number and it said a recall on the Goodyear tyres.
I doubt that. It's not really relevant who owns who, there are a lot more tyre brands than tyre companies, see here: https://www.tyrereviews.com/Article/who ... brands.htm

The recall is about Goodyear branded tyres, regardless of whether another company owns them or not. So if the recall appears for your VIN (it does for mine too, which also has Conti tyres), it's either a mistake in the recall lookup system or, more likely, that the recall only applies *if* your car has Goodyear tyres. Car manufacturers use different brands of tyres on the same model and it's likely that which make was mounted on your car is not recorded in the VIN database.

It seems this is the case ☝️ . In the German Born forum there are people who had the Goodyear tyre recall for cars with Contis and there was no need to change anything. In fact, those who did have Goodyears had them changed for Contis.

Check my vin and my car has the bonnet pin and tyre recall.

Checked and it is on 19" Goodyears.

So does this mean that it should get all 4 tyres replaced?

Yep, book it in and they will replace all the tyres.

Thanks all. Booked mine in this morning (earliest appointment: early July - sigh). This was the first time they'd heard about the tyre recall so they didn't really know whether it would be an inspection, or a replacement at this point but they suspected (and hoped) that by the time our appointment comes around, they'll have it worked out. We've not received a letter and it's not on the DVLA system yet, but I dare say these will follow in a few weeks.

There is something quite unsettling about modern dealers (especially VAG ones, it seems) doing safety-critical recalls, but only offering appointments 6 weeks in the future. This feels like a massive exposure to the manufacturer of knowingly allowing potentially unsafe cars to drive around on the roads.

Took mine into the dealer today. They said when I arrived that it was only certain batches of Goodyear tyres which are being replaced. On my return they said mine are fine and don't need anything doing because they're not in the affected batch(es). Just thought I'd note it down because everything I've seen on this so far has been "if they're Goodyear, they will be replaced" but that seems not to be the case.

Sigh, so I need to wait a month and have the car go in for a day so they can check if the serial numbers on the tyres match a published list?

If only there was a better way to do this...

Yep. It's madness. I was told on arrival that they would check the serial number, and if they were affected then the dealership would then need to order a new set of tyres and I'd have to bring the car back another day for fitting. So you'll need to wait a month for your appointment, have them do the check, and then possibly go back again an indeterminate amount of time later to have them fitted. It's not ideal.
