Recall Alert : Trans Texas Tire

March 26, 2019 NHTSA Campaign Number: 19T003000
Tire Sidewalls Incorrectly Labeled

The incorrect PLY and PSI markings may result in underinflating or overloading the tires, increasing the risk of crash.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 19T003000

Manufacturer Trans Texas Tire

Components TIRES

Potential Number of Units Affected 560

Summary

Trans Texas Tire (TTT) is recalling certain Contender 5.70-8 tires sold exclusively through Discount Tire stores. The tire sidewalls are incorrectly labeled, in that each side of the tire may state different PLY and PSI markings. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 574, "Tire Identification & Recordkeeping."

Remedy

TTT will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires with tires that have the correct sidewall markings, free of charge. The recall will begin in May 2019. Owners may contact Trans Texas Tire customer service at 1-903-572-0267.
