RECALL Subject : Improper Sidewall Markings/FMVSS 119

Report Receipt Date: SEP 07, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16T014000
Component(s): TIRES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 11,904

Manufacturer: Tireco Inc.

SUMMARY:
Tireco Inc. (Tireco) is recalling certain Milestar BS623 tires, size 225/70R 19.5 G/14, manufactured June 23, 2013, to January 24, 2015. The affected tires have incorrect markings on the sidewall, indicating both ratings as "DUAL" when the first rating should be identified as "SINGLE." As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 119, "New Pneumatic Tires-Other Than Passenger Cars."
CONSEQUENCE:
Incorrectly identifying the ratings on the tires may result in the operator inadvertently overloading the tires, possibly causing their failure, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Tireco will notify owners, and provide owners with a full refund of the entire purchase price. The recall is expected to begin October 10, 2016. Owners may contact Tireco customer service at 1-800-937-9433.
