Sumitomo Rubber Industries is recalling 2,286 Falken ZIEX CT50 A/S tires, size P255/50R20 104V with date code 1619; Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires, size 215/45R18 89W with date code 0919; and Goodyear Eagle LS2 tires size P215/50R17 90V, with date code 0619.

An incorrect rubber compound may have been used in manufacturing, which may allow sections near the tread surface to become partially detached.

A detached tread can decrease vehicle stability thereby increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

The Goodyear tires were recovered from dealer inventory before being sold to consumers.

Sumitomo will notify owners and dealers of the remaining recalled tires, and dealers will replace them free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin December 6, 2019.

Owners may contact Sumitomo customer service at (800) 845-8378.
