Continental Tire the Americas is recalling 5,993 ProContact GX SSR MOE tires, size 225/45R18 95H XL, manufactured June 22, 2014, to July 28, 2014.
The tires are used for front axle fitment on 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles.
The tires may have been deformed during the curing process, and could cause the tire tread to appear distorted when inflated. Such a tire may suddenly fail during use, increasing the risk of a crash.
CTA has notified owners, and tire dealers or Mercedes-Benz dealers will replace the tires, free of charge. The recall began on October 30, 2014.
Owners may contact CTA customer service at 1-888-799-2168.
