AG Announces China Tire Recall
(2007-08-10)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Alabama Attorney General Troy King says a tire importer is recalling 255,000 Chinese-made tires because they lack a safety feature that prevents tread separation.

The recall involves half the number of tires that the importer, Foreign Tire Sales, had identified in June as possibly posing a risk.

King, in a statement, said the models involved are steel-belted radial replacement tires for pickups, vans and sport utility vehicles that consumers bought from early 2004 through mid-2006.

The recall applies to Westlake, Compass and YKS brand tires.

Information on the tire recall is posted at Foreign Tire Sale's Web site, http://www-dot-foreigntire-dot-com. Consumers can also call a toll-free number, 888-899-9293.
