1,900 tires in the sizes 265/70R17 115T Falken Wildpeak AT3W and LT235/85R16 120/116S Wildpeak HT02 are being recalled by Sumitomo Rubber USA (Sumitomo). The tire maker stated that the tires can have a sidewall puncture and leak air as a result of a manufacturing fault. The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles,” is thus not met by these tires.
According to Sumitomo, dealers will swap out the faulty tires for free. Letters notifying owners should arrive in the mail on January 11.
