Additional information:

Among the 79 recalls the NHTSA has announced this October comes news of the following:

Harbor Freight Tools (“Harbor Freight”) has recalled an estimated 173,557 model year Innova Ultra Runner Utility Trailer Tires, sizes 5.3×12 and 4.80/4.00×12, and Far East Utility Trailer Tires, size 4.80/4.00×8, purchased mounted on replacement Trailer Rims. These Tires may not be strong enough to support the expected loads. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 119, “New Pneumatic Tires-Other than Passenger Cars.”

According to the NHTSA, if the tires cannot meet the strength requirements, the tires may fail, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do next? Harbor Freight will notify registered owners, and stores will provide replacement tires mounted on rims, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 6, 2017. Owners may contact Harbor Freight customer service at 1-800-444-3353.
