Continental issued a recall for a variety of its motorcycle tires because the tread, belt and carcass may separate. This could result in a loss of tire pressure, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall includes certain ContiAttack SM, ContiSportAttack, ContiSportAttack2, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Soft, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Medium, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Endurance, and ContiRoadAttack 2 GTW tires.

The company issued the recall after numerous property damage claims were made internationally. None of these claims, however, were made in the US.

The affected tires were sold to original equipment and replacement customers worldwide between 2007 and 2014. This safety recall is part of a worldwide program affecting 170,000 tires.

Continental will notify owners of the problem but hasn't provided a notification schedule. Owners can contact Continental customer service at 1-800-847-3349 for more information.
