Double Camel, in cooperation with Lionshead Specialty Tire & Wheel, is recalling approximately 4,000 Vail Sport ST LH 99 tubeless trailer tires, size 225/75D15, that were manufactured from April 2012 through February 2013.

The affected tires may not be marked with the load range letter designation. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 119, 'New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars.'

Tires that are missing the load range designation may cause the owner to unknowingly overload the tires, resulting in a blowout, increasing the risk of a crash.

Owners of the recalled Vail Sport ST LH 99 trailer tires will be notified by Lionshead, and local dealers will replace the tires, free of charge.

For additional information on this recall, contact Lionshead at 574-533-6169.
