Alliance recalls 286 OTR tires

Alliance Tire Americas, Inc. is recalling certain 14-17.5 ML Alliance 239 tires built for use on mining, logging and industrial equipment for restricted (55 mph maximum) highway use. They were manufactured over a year's time, from week code 1613 (the 16th week of 2013) through week code 1514 (the 15th week of 2014).

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) campaign ID number is 14T002. The potential number of affected units is 286.

According to NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation, the affected tires are missing required sidewall markings such as the letters DOT; the tire identification number; the load and inflation information; the number of plies and composition information; and the tire load range. As such, these tires do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 119, "New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars."

"Tires that are missing needed information such as tire identification numbers, loads and inflation amounts, and speed restrictions could cause the driver to over fill or overload the tires resulting in a blow out, increasing the risk of a crash," says NHTSA.

Alliance will notify customers, and dealers will install identical tires with the proper sidewall markings, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2014. Owners may contact Alliance Tire customer service at (800) 343-3276.
