Among the 21 recalls the NHTSA has announced this May comes news of the following:

Logo - Trans Texas TireTrans Texas Tire (“TTT”) has recalled an estimated 560 Contender 5.70-8 Tires sold exclusively through Discount Tire stores. The recalled Tire sidewalls are incorrectly labeled, in that each side of the Tire may state different PLY and PSI markings. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 574, “Tire Identification & Recordkeeping.”

According to the NHTSA, the incorrect PLY and PSI markings may result in underinflating or overloading the tires, increasing the risk of crash.

TTT will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the Tires with tires that have the correct sidewall markings, free of charge. The recall will begin in May 2019. Owners may contact Trans Texas Tire customer service at 1-903-572-0267.
