WASHINGTON—Taiwanese tire maker Federal Corp. is recalling 6,209 Couragia A/T LT245/75R16 120/116Q 10PR tires manufactured between May 2013 and April 2014.
The tires, which bear sidewall stampings reading “DOT UXA3,” may suffer shoulder cracks caused by separation of the steel belt edge, Federal told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. These cracks may cause loss of air pressure, increasing the risk of a crash, Federal said.
Federal will replace the tires free of charge. The company told NHTSA it would begin notifying tire owners on or about July 15. Meanwhile, tire owners may call Federal at 855-444-8235.
