Continental Tire the Americas (CTA) is recalling a total of more than 8500 ContiProContact tires in 2 separate actions.
The first involves 4,884 ContiProContact tires, size 225/45R17 91H, manufactured February 22, 2015, to May 16, 2015.
Due to a manufacturing error, these aftermarket replacement tires may leak air from the bead area. A loss of air pressure may result in sudden tire failure and increase the risk of a crash.
CTA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected tires, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 3, 2015.
The second recall is for 3,826 ContiProContact tires, size P205/65R15 95T Extra Load, manufactured February 8, 2015, to February 14, 2015, sold as aftermarket replacement tires.
These tires may experience a tread separation which may result in sudden air loss, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
CTA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected tires and provide reimbursement to owners who replaced tires prior to the recall campaign. The recall is expected to begin in August 2015.
Owners may contact CTA customer service at 1-888-799-2168 for both recalls.
