Owners of Toyo and Nitto tires manufactured before 2014 should check if tires have been recalled
Potential risk of failure in recalled tires
January 16, 2017 – Ottawa, ON – Transport Canada
Transport Canada is encouraging all owners of Toyo Open Country H/T tires and Nitto Dura Grappler Highway Terrain tires to check if they have been recalled.
A recall for certain models of these tires was issued in 2014, but only five per cent of owners have had the recall work carried out.
The recalled tires are prone to separation on the tread belts. This can cause vibration and irregular wear initially, progressing to rapid loss of inflation pressure if not addressed. This can lead to a risk of tire failure and a vehicle crash.
Dealers will replace the tires of anyone affected by this recall. All models of this tire that are affected are listed on Transport Canada’s website under recall #2014479.
Transport Canada encourages all owners to register their tires with the tire manufacturer when first purchased. This allows a manufacturer to easily contact the owner should there ever be a recall.
The Department is not aware of any incidents of these tires failing in Canada, however is aware of a handful of cases in the United States.
- A total of 10,339 tires are affected as a result of this recall.
- The original recall was issued in October 2014.
