Les Schwab is recalling 41,336 steel-belted radial truck tires that were retreaded for customers.

The vulcanizing compound used during the retreading may not have been completely cured, resulting in incomplete adhesion of the tread to tire casing.

The incompletely cured vulcanizing compound can result in the tire tread separating from the tire casing, increasing the risk of a crash.

The potentially affected retreaded tires were manufactured at Les Schwab's three retread facilities during calendar weeks 42 through 50 of 2017 and have the DOTR numbers: RDNJ4217RS - RDNJ5017RS, RNVK4417RS - RNVK5017RS and RCEE4217RS - RCEE5017RS.

What to do

Les Schwab will notify the customers that had their tires retreaded, and will exchange them for properly retreaded ones, free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Les Schwab at 1-541-447-4136.
