General Motors is recalling 7,516 model year 2020 Buick Enclaves Cadillac XT5s, GMC Acadias & Chevrolet Traverses, and model year 2020-2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500s and GMC Sierra 1500s.
The vehicles may have been manufactured with Continental tires that were overcured.
Overcured tires may experience a carcass break in the sidewall resulting in a sudden air loss, or could develop a belt edge separation that could lead to partial or full tread/belt loss.
Either condition increases the risk of a crash.
What to do
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect vehicles and replace tires that have DOT number and production mold number combinations identified by Continental free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 21, 2020.
Owners may contact GMC customer service at (888) 988-7267, Buick customer service at (800) 521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020 or Cadillac customer service at (800) 458-8006. GM's number for this recall is N202319030.
