Toyo recalls certain Toyo, Nitto brand tires
Toyo Tire Holdings of Americas Inc. is recalling certain Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrain, Toyo Open Country A/T and Toyo Proxes ST II tires.
The Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrain tires under recall are in size 305/50R20.
"Some of the subject tires may have been produced with a wrinkle in the upper sidewall area," say National Highway Traffic Safety Administration officials.
"Under certain circumstances, this wrinkle may eventually lead to a crack in the sidewall. If a crack develops and is left undetected, the tire may fail, potentially causing a crash."
Toyo will notify owners and replace the tires free of charge, which includes mounting and balancing.
Owners may contact the Toyo consumer hotline at (800) 442-8696 or the Nitto consumer hotline at (888) 529-8200.
