Japan's Bridgestone Corp. began shipment of a total of 450 thousand Dueler H/L683 and A/T693 tires to its American affiliate. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating 62 deaths and more than 100 injuries in connection with the tires recalled in the United States.AP/David Guttenfelder
