Federal Tire Recall Notice !!

This pertains to truck tires, but I know that a lot of folks here have trucks, SUV's, and vans as their second or third vehicles.

The NHTSA ordered Foreign Tire Sales to recall nearly 450,000 tires.

Foreign Tire Sales ships tires to Pep Boys, Sears, NTB, Just Tires and other outlets.

If you have one of the tires listed below, return to the place of purchase for a full refund. You will have to replace the tires as part of the recall, but you will not be charged for installation.

Details:

The recall applies to Westlake, Compass and YKS brand tires in these sizes and models:

Size LT235/75R-15, models CR861 and CR857, with a DOT number beginning 7DT5FTS.

Size LT235/85R-16, models CR860, CR861 and CR857, with a DOT number beginning 7DT2FTS.

Size LT245/75R-16, models CR860, CR861 and CR857, with a DOT number beginning 7DT3FTS.

Size LT265/75R-16, models CR860, CR861 and CR857, with a DOT number beginning 7DT4FTS.

Size LT31X10.5 R-15, models CR857 and CR861, with a DOT number beginning 7DT6FTS.

Hmmm, imagine that. Tire brands I have never heard the name of before. I wonder if they were cheap?. Seriously, though thanks for posting this.

Portions of the tires were made in China (shocker)...

They are all discount brands, but the only one I've ever heard of is the YKS tire.
