Carlisle Tire and Wheel trail tire recall

On September 21, 2010 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) recalled certain Carlisle Tire and Wheel Company (CETS) LRD USA Trail tires, size 20.5/8.0-10.

What is the danger?

The tires fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109, "New Pneumatic Tires." These tires are marked improperly on the opposite side as load range "E" on one sidewall side, when they should have been marked load range żD.ż

This incorrect load range marking may lead to an owner purchasing a tire that is not appropriate for their particular vehicle application. If you use incorrectly sized tires on a vehicle then it could lead to a vehicle overloading or other consequences that could increase the risk of a tire failure that could lead to a vehicle crash.

What do I do?

CETS will replace the noncompliant tires free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during September 2010. You may contact CETS at 1-315-477-9107.
