Overcurring may cause the tire sidewall may break

Continental Tire the Americas is recalling 2,937 4x4 Contact, size 255/55R19 111V XL; PureContact LS, size 215/60R16 95V; and TerrainContact H/T, size 255/55R20 107H tires.

The tires may have been overcured during manufacturing.

Overcured tires may develop a break in the sidewall, resulting in sudden air loss or experience tread separation, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Continental will replace the tires free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed January 12, 2023.

Owners may contact Continental's customer service at (888) 799-2168.
