Continental announced a voluntary safety recall program involving approximately 325 light truck tires. The tires involved in the recall are General Grabber 33x12.50R18 LT118Q produced in May 2015 and sold in the replacement market only.

The tires may experience localized tread wear, excessive vibration, noise and bulging in the tread area. With continued use, the tire could experience a tread separation, which could result in loss of vehicle control. The tires can be identified with the Department of Transportation (DOT) codes A3CB 1YC 1815 and A3CB 1YC 1915. Only the production DOT weeks 1815 and 1915 are affected. Continental has not received any reports of accidents or injuries resulting from this condition.

Continental notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the details of the recall on January 20, 2017. The company is in communication with its tire distributors and dealers to identify consumers who purchased affected tires. Owners will be promptly notified and informed about the details of the voluntary safety recall program.

Consumers seeking more information, including instructions for identifying affected tires as well as obtaining replacement tires are asked to visit Continental's Web site http://continentaltire.custhelp.com for more information.
