Recall Notice: Toyo Extensa A/S

By January 30, 2012

Follow me on:

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."

The tires affected by the recall are all in size P225/60/R16 97T, and were made between September 20, 2009 and November 6, 2010. (How to find out when your tire was made.)

Toyo Tire will replace the tires free of charge. Owners may contact Toyo at 1-800-442-8696
