The rubber chemical mixture used in some of the recalled tires does not meet Toyo's specification for these tires. Sections of the tread may become detached, potentially causing loss of vehicle control, possibly resulting in a crash. Toyo will notify owners and replace the tires free of charge, including mounting, balancing and taxes. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about February 18, 2011. Owners may contact Toyo toll-free at 1-800-442-8696 (6:30 am to 5:00pm pacific time) or Nitto at 1-888-529-8200 (8am to 5pm pacific time).
