Vee Tyre Recalls 21 16-Inch Taiga M/T Tires

Aug. 29, 2016

Vee Tyre and Rubber Co. Ltd is recalling certain Taiga M/T tires, size LT225/75R16, manufactured Jan. 8, 2015, to March 1, 2015. The potential number of units affected is 21.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Campaign ID Number for the recall is 16T010.

According to the the NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation, the sidewall of the affected tires may blister and the interliner may separate, compromising the integrity of the tires at high speeds. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles."

"If the sidewall blisters or interliner separates it may cause a tire blow out at high speeds, increasing the risk of a crash."

Owners may contact Vee customer service at (212) 564-7575 for more information.
