The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports PT Multistrada Arah Sarana Tbk. (Multistrada) of Jakarta, Indonesia, is recalling certain Achilles Desert Hawk A/P LT tires, size LT215/85 R16 115/112R 10PR, with Department of Transportation (DOT) date code 1915 through date code 3618.
The lower sidewall of the tires may separate. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles."
A sidewall separation can cause loss of air pressure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Multistrada will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires, free of charge.
