Toyo Tire recalls tyres in the US

TOYO Tire in the US is recalling 68,763 Extensa A/S tyres distributed to retailers within the country that may have been produced with a kink at the bead area of the tyres.

Under certain circumstances, the kink may eventually lead to a crack in the bead area. If a crack develops and is left undetected, the tyre may fail, potentially causing loss of vehicle control and a crash.

The recalled tyres were manufactured at the Toyo plant in the US with those with the “Made in Japan” or “Made in China” mark on the sidewall exempted from the recall.

The recall campaign expires 31 May. (PRA)
