Vee Tyre and Rubber Co. Ltd. is recalling certain Taiga A/T tires, size LT285/75R16. Due to a manufacturing issue, the sidewall may separate from the tire, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA.)

"Sidewall separation can lead to tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash. Vee Tyres will notify and reimburse owners the cost of the tires along with any service fees."

This recall is expected to begin on June 30.
