Toyo Tire is recalling certain Extensa A/S tires beginning on February 2.
According to the NHTSA, "Some of these tires may have been produced with a kink in the bead area. Under certain circumstances, the kink may eventually lead to a crack in the bead area, which is near the rim. If a crack develops and is left undetected, the tire may fail, potentially causing loss of vehicle control and a crash, which could result in injury or death."
Toyo Tire will replace the tires free of charge. Owners may contact Toyo at 1-800-442-8696
