Nitto and Toyo Tire Recall
I am on an email list for tire recalls and recieved this today. Do any of you run these tires?
NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 10T002
Toyo Tire Holdings of Americas, Inc. is recalling certain Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrain, size 305/50R20 120S, Toyo Open Country A/T and Toyo Proxes ST II, size 305/50R20. Some of the subject tires may have been produced with a wrinkle in the upper sidewall area of the tires. Under certain circumstances, this wrinkle may eventually lead to a crack in the sidewall. If a crack develops and is left undetected, the tire may fail, potentially causing a crash, possibly resulting in injury or death. Toyo will notify owners and replace the affected tires free of charge, which includes mounting and balancing. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about February 22, 2010. Owners may contact Nitto customer hotline at 1-888-529-8200 or Toyo customer hotline at 1-800-442-8696.
