  • Delinte DX11 tires, size LT275/65R20 with DOT date codes 3617 through 2219
  • Lionhart Lionclaw HT tires, size LT275/65R20 with DOT date codes 4617 through
    2518
  • Lexani LXHT206 tires, size LT275/65R20 with DOT date codes 4617 through 5018
  • Patriot Patriot HT tires, size LT275/65R20 with DOT date codes 2518 through 2618

  • Pantera Supertrac HT tires, size LT275/65R20 with DOT date codes 4717 through 2418

Due to a potential manufacturing defect, the sidewall may separate from the tire, NHTSA said. As such, the tires fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles.”

Sidewall separation can lead to tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash and serious personal injury, including death.

Sentury is notifying owners and dealers will replace the tires for free. This recall began on April 27, 2020.

Tread Separation Manufacturer’s Defect

One of the most common causes of tire tread separation is a manufacturer’s defect, where something went wrong in the bonding process of the tread and steel belting of the tire casing, and the tread failed to adhere properly. Signs that your car’s tire has a tread bonding defect can often appear shortly after purchasing and using the tire for the first time.

The vehicle may feel imbalanced while driving, or you might feel an abnormal vibration. If the tire has a tread defect, a bump may form around the tread area which will expand until the separation occurs. This is typically the first visual sign that the tread will separate.

The driver should then inspect their tires by looking for bumps and feeling for any defects or wavy patterns by running their hands along the tread. When defects appear, the driver must replace the tire right away. Driving on tires with defects can put all occupants of the vehicle at risk.

Tire manufacturers have a responsibility for the safety and quality control of their products, but this does not mean that these companies will not, from time to time, manufacture defective tires.

Drivers should look for the following signs to determine whether their tires are at risk for tread separation:

  1. Cracking or cuts in the tire’s sidewall
  2. Uneven tread wear
  3. Bulges or blisters on the sidewall
  4. Excessively worn tread, which occurs when it has worn past the minimum of 1/16 inch depth.
  5. Excessive vibration when driving
