TBC recalls nearly 73,000 tires
TBC Corp. is recalling 72,938 Mirada Cross Tour SLX and Big O Big Foot S/T tires, sizes 235/70R16 and 265/70R17, manufactured from January 2009 through January 2011 (weeks 0409 through 0411).
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Office of Defects Investigation (ODI), these tires possess a manufacturing anomaly which may result in a crack or separation in the lower sidewall.
"If left in service, the crack/separation could grow and rapid air loss may occur, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash."
TBC says it will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires free of charge. Free mounting and balancing also will be included, as applicable.
The recall is expected to begin on July 20, 2012. Owners may contact TBC at (901) 363-8030.
