Incorrect markings prompt Towmax tyre recall in North America

Canada’s Dynamic Tire Corp. is recalling almost 17,400 Towmax STR tyres that have been marked with incorrect load capacity and inflation pressure information. The size ST225/75 R15 tyres were manufacturing by Shandong Yongfeng Tyres in China between 15 June and 14 October 2014 and due to the incorrect sidewall markings do not comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 119, ‘New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars.’

According to a recall notice issued by the NHTSA in the US, the misinformation on the label could lead a driver to overinflate the tyres, and in turn the tyre overinflation may increase the risk of a tyre failure. Dynamic will notify owners, and dealers will replace all eligible tyres free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on 10 December 2014.
