About 95,000 Capitol Precision Tires Recalled for Tread Separation
ITG Voma is recalling about 95,000 Capitol Precision Trac II tires for possible tread separation. Tire tread separation can result in sudden air loss, increasing the risk of a crash.
The tires were manufactured between March 2009 and May 2010 by Shandong Yongsheng Rubber Group Co. Ltd. at its plant in Guangrao, Shandong, China. The tires made during this period have a partial nylon cap ply under the tread instead of one covering the majority of each tire tread.
The affected tires include sizes 245/70R17, 235/70R16, 235/75R15, 245/70R16, 245/75R16, 255/70R16, and 265/75R16.
Due to the amount of time that has passed since these tires were manufactured, many will have surpassed their useful life. But there are still some on the road today, which will be replaced with more recently produced versions.
ITG Voma will notify the distributor, American Tire Distributors, and dealers will replace the affected tires, free of charge. For more information, owners may contact American Tire Distributors at 1-704-992-2000.
