38,129 Double Camel trailer tires are recalled

Posted on June 12, 2014

Qingdao Xiyingmen Double Camel Tyre Co. Ltd., in cooperation with Lionshead Specialty Tire & Wheel LLC, is recalling 38,129 Vail Sport ST LH 99 tubeless trailer tires encompassing build dates from Nov. 20, 2011, through Sept. 21, 2013 (sidewall date codes 4711 through 3713).

The recall is an extension of the previous recall of 1,440 Vail Sport ST LH 99 tubeless trailer tires, DOT code 69, manufactured from July 14, 2013, through July 27, 2013 (date codes 2813 or 2913). All the recalled tires are size 225/75D15, load range D,

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) campaign ID number is 14T001. The second recall increases the number of potential affected units to nearly 40,000.

According to NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation, 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."

"Tire damage from road hazards, failure from prolonged use or unseating of the tire from the rim increases the risk of a crash," says NHTSA.

Lionshead will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires with compliant ones. The recall for the expanded population of tires is expected to begin in June 2014. The recall of the initial population of tires began in February 2014. Customers may contact Lionshead at (574) 533-6169.
