The Ford Motor Company has announced a recall for trucks with defective tires.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2016 Ford F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 trucks. The tires installed during assembly of the affected vehicles may have sustained damage to the inner sidewall, possibly resulting in a loss of air or a tire rupture.

A rapid loss of air or a tire rupture while the vehicle is being driven may cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

The company is including about 2,300 vehicles in its recall.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tires for damage and replace them as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Ford customer service at (866) 436-7332.
