450,000 Chinese tires were recalled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration today. This is an initial recall, and as these things go recalls tend to expand rather than contract. This recall will impact the following brand names:
These tires were intended to be used on trucks and are being recalled as the rubber could separate causing an accident.
The tires, made by China-based Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co., have an insufficient or missing gum strip, a rubber feature that helps prevent steel belts inside the tire from separating or from damaging the rubber.
"If you have gum strip missing, eventually the bond between the steel belts and rubber components will weaken and break," said John Rastetter, director of tire information for TireRack.com, an on-line tire retailer. TireRack.com does not sell any of the tires involved in the recall.
