Harbor Freight recalls utility trailer tires

The tires may have insufficient strength

Harbor Freight Tools is recalling 173,557 Innova Ultra Runner utility trailer tires, sizes 5.3x12 and 4.80/4.00x12, and Far East utility trailer tires, size 4.80/4.00x8, purchased mounted on replacement trailer rims.

These tires may not be strong enough to support the expected loads. The tires, therefore, fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 119, "New Pneumatic Tires-Other than Passenger Cars."

If the tires cannot meet the strength requirements, the tires may fail, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Harbor Freight will notify owners, and stores will provide replacement tires mounted on rims, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin November 6, 2017.

Owners may contact Harbor Freight customer service at 1-800-444-3353.
