Double Camel recalls 1,440 Vail trailer tires

Posted on February 25, 2014

Qingdao Xiyingmen Double Camel Tyre Co. Ltd., in cooperation with Lionshead Specialty Tire & Wheel LLC, is recalling certain Vail Sport ST LH 99 tubeless trailer tires. The number of potential units affected is 1,440.

The tires, in size 225/75D15, load range D, were manufactured from July 14, 2013, through July 27, 2013. They have a sidewall date code of 2813 or 2913, and a United States Department of Transportation (DOT) Code of 69.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI), the affected tires "may fail under prolonged use and may become unseated from the rims. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 119, " New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars."

Failure or unseating of the tire increases the risk of a crash, adds the ODI.

Lionshead will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires with compliant ones. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Customers may contact Lionshead at (574) 533-6169.
