Yokohama Tire Corp. has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it is voluntarily recalling 19 sizes of commercial tires that were manufactured at Yokohama’s plant in West Point, Miss.
The tires were made between January 12, 2020 and February 15, 2020. A total of 4,209 tires are being recalled.
The recall, initiated in accordance with NHTSA regulations, was issued because the tires may have been manufactured with an out-of-specification compound, according to a statement released by Yokohama.
"There is a possible risk of tire damage due to material detachment inside the tire. This could lead to a tire disablement and an increased risk of loss of vehicle control."
