WASHINGTON (Sept. 24, 2010)—Carlisle Tire and Wheel Co. has voluntarily recalled 202 LRD USA Trail tires, size 20.5/8.0-10, for improper load range markings.
The recalled tires are marked Load Range E on one sidewall side when they should have been marked Load Range D, Carlisle told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The error could cause vehicle owners to buy tires with an inadequate load range for their particular application, leading to possible tire failures and accidents, the tire maker said.
Carlisle is replacing the recalled tires free of charge. For questions about the recall, call Carlisle at 315-477-9107.
