What’s the problem?

February 16, 2011 – This week, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. and Nitto Tire U.S.A., Inc. announced they will be recalling nearly 5,000 of the following tires that were distributed to retailers throughout the U.S.:

  • Toyo Versado CUV
  • Toyo Versado LX II
  • Toyo Open Country A/T
  • Toyo Tourevo LS II
  • Nitto Terra Grappler

The problem is with a rubber chemical mixture used in the manufacturing process that reportedly does not meet the company’s specifications. This may result in tread separation, which can lead to loss of vehicle control and a crash.

The tires in question can be identified by the “Made in Japan” stamp and the numbers “3810” or “3910” at the end of the DOT serial number, both located on the tire sidewall. Affected consumers are urged to have their recalled tires replaced immediately. If you’d like more information about the tires involved in this nationwide recall, please visit [1], and [2].

Other Toyo Tire Recalls

In 2005, Toyo issued a recall for its line of M127 commercial truck tires because the shoulder pad component was made of sub-standard rubber that could tear and cause blowouts.

In total, Toyo has issued nearly 20 recalls for its Extensa, Open Country, Proxes, Tourevo, and Versado tire lines.

The most dangerous tire of all is the Toyo Open Country H-T Tuff Duty tire for pickup trucks, for which Toyo has issued at least 7 separate recalls.
