RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (July 17) — Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. voluntarily is recalling about 78,000 Venture HT and AT light truck tires in the U.S. and Canada because of a blister on the sidewall, which may exist in certain Load Range E tires.
Kumho said the blister may produce a noticeable tire vibration. The condition eventually may lead to air pressure loss and potentially a vehicle crash, the company said. To date, Kumho said there have been no reported tire failures, accidents or injuries.
Recalled tires will be replaced at no cost to consumers through Kumho tire dealers in the U.S. and Canada, Kumho said.
