Advance tyres in US recall
GTC North America, US importer of the Advance tyre brand produced by Guizhou Tyre in China, is recalling almost 12,300 Advance Extra Grip AR215 light truck radials produced between September 2008 and 2009. The company says this recall applies to size P235/75R15 tyres and pertains to blistering or bubbles appearing on the tyre’s sidewall. A recall notice lodged with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that these blisters or bubbles may, with extended use, lead to tread chunking on the tyre with belt edge exposure and possible loss of inflation.
GTC will notify owners of affected tyres and replace them with similar products free of charge.
