Pirelli recalls 8,000 light truck tires
Pirelli Tire North America Inc. is recalling approximately 8,000 size LT235/80R17 light truck tires, which are primarily used on large pickup trucks and SUVs.
The tires, all Load Range E, were built between July 11, 2005, and Oct. 30, 2007, at Pirelli facilities in Brazil.
"Under adverse service conditions, the tires may experience partial tread separation caused by higher than normal operating temperatures and extreme loads," say Pirelli officials.
"There have been no reported accidents involving personal injury with this tire."
For more information, Pirelli is urging consumers to call (800) 747-3554.
