Toyo recalls certain Toyo, Nitto brand tires

Posted on February 23, 2010

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.
