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

Synopsis:
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.
For more information for this particular recall, please go to 10T002.

Thank you,

I just bought a set of these on some 20" XD's. Frick. Thank you for informing me. Thankfully I haven't mounted them yet cause of all the salt still around and looming weather

Does this affect any other size of the Terra Grapplers?

I believe that it's just the 33's and not other sizes.
