Federal regulators are forcing the company to recall three and half million more Wilderness A-T tires mounted on Sport utility vehicles.
The recall involves tires made before 1998- either used as original equipment on Ford models or sold as replacement tires for other SUV brands.
The CEO of Bridgestone-Firestone says the company does not agree with regulators, because it did testing that found the tires perform well.
