Curing issue leads to US Continental recall

Continental Tire the Americas has recalled close to 6,000 ProContact GX SSR MOE tyres, size 225/45R18 95H XL that were manufactured between 22 June and 28 July 2014. The tyres, which were supplied to Daimler as an original equipment fitment on 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles in North America, may have been deformed during the curing process, and this could cause the tyre tread to appear distorted when inflated. Continental notes that tyres that were deformed during the curing process may suddenly fail during use, increasing the risk of a crash.
