WASHINGTON (Sept. 3, 2009)—Pirelli Tire L.L.C. has recalled 1,680 PZero Corsa tires, size 285/35 ZR19 (99Y) K1, for possible tread and belt edge separation.
The tires, manufactured between June 2007 and July 2009, are specified for the Ferrari 430 Scuderia and Scuderia Spider 16M vehicles, Pirelli told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in a Sept. 1 letter. When those vehicles are driven at speeds above 168 mph, the recalled tires can develop belt edge and partial tread separation, leading to a crash, the tire maker said.
As of Sept. 3, Pirelli had not provided NHTSA with a schedule to notify consumers and replace the tires, the agency said. In its letter, Pirelli requested as a matter of course an assignment of a notification campaign number to accompany the recall notice to tire buyers.
