What's the Problem?
This recall affects Tornel A/T-09 tires, size LT265/75R16, Load Range C with DOT date codes 2119 through 2619, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Due to improper manufacturing, the sidewall rubber on affected Tornel Tires may separate from the body ply cords and cause separation of the lower sidewall, making the tires fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles," NHTSA said.
Sidewall separation can lead to tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash and severe personal injuries.
Tornel is notifying owners and dealers will replace the tires, free of charge, according to the NHTSA. This recall began on March 24, 2020.
