Recall Alert : Vee Tyre and Rubber

RECALL Subject : Tire Sidewall May Blister/FMVSS 139

Report Receipt Date: JUL 27, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16T010000
Component(s): TIRES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 21


Manufacturer: Vee Tyre and Rubber Co., Ltd.

SUMMARY:
Vee Tyre and Rubber Co., Ltd (Vee) is recalling certain Taiga M/T tires, size LT225/75R16, manufactured January 8, 2015, to March 1, 2015. The sidewall of the affected tires may blister and the interliner may separate, compromising the integrity of the tires at high speeds. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles."
CONSEQUENCE:
If the sidewall blisters or interliner separates it may cause a tire blow out at high speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Vee has successfully quarantined the affected tires. The recall began on May 25, 2016. Owners may contact Vee customer service at 1-212-564-7575.
