"Due to manufacturing issues, the tread or inner liner may separate from the tire," NHTSA said. "As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles."
Tread or inner liner separation could lead to a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash and severe personal injuries, including death.
Shaanxi is notifying owners and dealers will reimburse the customer for the affected tires.
This recall began in September 2020.

Early Warning Signs of Tire Tread Separation
One of the first indicators that your tire tread is wearing down is a slight vibration or out-of-balance feeling you’ll notice while driving your vehicle.
Next, you may notice a bump or blister forming on the tread. Once a blister forms, it will grow until the tire blows out. You can check your tires for bumps and deformations with careful visual inspection and running your hands along the tire tread for irregularities.
Other trouble signs that may indicate potential tire failure include:
- Sidewall cracks
- Uneven tread wear
- Tread that’s worn thin
