Continental Tire Recalling ContiTrac Tires for Trucks

March 30, 2011

WASHINGTON - Continental Tire is recalling more than 390,600 ContiTrac tires sold as aftermarket and installed as original equipment on some model-year 2008 and 2009 Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the tires covered in the recall were all produced from May 6, 2007 through Sept. 20, 2008. Some of these tires may experience uneven wear or vibration. Particularly under conditions of overloading or under-inflation in high temperatures, the tires may be more vulnerable to separation between the belt edges than other tires.

Continental Tire will notify affected truck owners and make any necessary replacements free of charge. The company can be reached at (888) 799-2168.
