Shandong recalls 5,068 LT tires
Shandong Jinyu Industrial Co. Ltd. is recalling 5,068 Evergreen and Jinyu tires manufactured between April 1, 2011 and Aug. 31, 2014.
The affected tires are the Evergreen ES89 LT225/75R16 and the Jinyu YS78 LT225/75R16. The date codes on the affected tires are 1611 through 4314.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) campaign number is 15T009.
According to NHTSA, the affected tires may not be able to properly dissipate heat, and as a result the tire belts may separate. If that happens, the tire may suddenly lose air, increasing the risk of a crash.
NHTSA says the manufacturer has not yet provided a notifcation schedule for this recall. Owners may contact Shandong customer service at 1-786-521-1296. Owners also may contact the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) or go to www.safercar.gov.
