Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is recalling nearly 41,000 Wrangler Silent Armor light truck tires produced from March 31 through May 31, 2009.

The sizes being recalled are LT235/80R17 LRE, LT325/60R18 LRE, LT275/70R18 LRE, LT265/70R17 LRE, LT245/75R17 LRE and LT285/70R17 LRD. (To identify the date of manufacture, look at the last four digits of the TIN on the sidewall. In this case, the numbers range from 0909 through 2209.)

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI), the tires being recalled "may experience a partial tread area separation under certain severe usage conditions."

The ODI adds that:

* a partial tread separation "could lead to vehicle damage when the separated tread strikes the vehicle";

* a tread separation "could also cause a tire failure that could result in a motor vehicle crash."

Goodyear will notify owners and replace the tires free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before March 22, 2012. Owners may contact Goodyear at (800) 592-3267.
