Continental Tire Logo

 

Continental AG has voluntarily recalled approximately 325 light truck tires sold in the replacement market only. The tires are General Grabber 33×12.50R18 LT118Q produced in May 2015.

The company says the tires may experience localized tread wear, excessive vibration, noise and bulging in the tread area. With continued use, the tire could experience a tread separation, which could result in loss of vehicle control.

The tires can be identified with the Department of Transportation (DOT) codes A3CB 1YC 1815 and A3CB 1YC 1915. Only the production DOT weeks 1815 and 1915 are affected. Continental has not received any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from this condition.

Continental notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the details of the recall on January 20, 2017. The company is in communication with its tire distributors and dealers to identify consumers who purchased affected tires. Owners will be promptly notified and informed about the details of the voluntary safety recall program.

Pirelli Tire LLC is recalling 1,190 P Zero All Season tires that were built with an incorrect carcass component.

Pirelli says the problem was caused by a production error, and the tires may show surface cracking in the lower sidewall of the tire as it reaches the end of its tread lift. The tires, in size 275/40R19 101W, were produced between Feb. 29, 2016, and Oct. 29, 2016. The tires were designed as original equipment fitments for certain Maserati cars.

The tire identification number is WB Y2 U352 0916-4316.

Pirelli says it discovered the problem while performing control plan testing on tires from the 43rd production week, and one tire didn’t meet its internal testing specifications. Pirelli is working with Maserati SpA to identify and notify affected owners, and the tire company will replace the tires free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin in December 2016. Owners may contact Pirelli customer service at 1-706-368-5800. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.

Missing Date Code Calls for Recall of Select Pirelli Tires

download

Pirelli Tire LLC is recalling 42 P Zero Trofeo tires because they lack the required date code required by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.

Pirelli says the date code insert fell out of the cavity of the tire mold during production during the 13th and 14th weeks of 2015. A tire dealer alerted the company of a shipment of four tires received without the date code.

The recall involves size 225/50ZR15 TL 91Y. The tire identification number preceding the missing date code is XJBU U785.

Because the tire is a track tire for driving enthusiasts, Pirelli told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) “due to the nature of this tire type and application, it is likely that many of the subject tires are no longer in use, due to the intended usage of the tires and their expected short life.”

Pirelli is notifying owners and dealers and replace the tires free of charge. Owners may contact Pirelli customer service at 1-800-747-3554.

Owners also may contact the NHTSA hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) or go to http://www.safercar.gov.

Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC says it has closed the safety recall it issued May 6, 2016, after determining that the incident involved only eight tires of a single size, and none ever left the company’s possession.

The company says, “After further intense lot tracing, inspection and validation, we have determined that only eight tire units of one tire size (Firestone Champion with Fuel Fighter Technology in size 205/70R15) were impacted by a production error at our Wilson, N.C. passenger tire plant, and we now know all impacted units are contained and never left our company’s possession. There is no safety concern and we have closed this safety recall.

“We have notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and are working to have the original recall filing amended to reflect this information. We are communicating with our retail and dealer networks to advise them as well. We exercised an extraordinary amount of caution and filed a safety recall notice with NHTSA before a thorough investigation could be completed in order to comply with the five-day filing requirements stipulated by NHTSA.”

Bridgestone says consumers with questions about the safety of their Bridgestone or Firestone tires may call 1-844-293-7514, or locate an authorized Firestone dealer to examine the tires in question.
