NHTSA Recall ID Number : 23T001
Synopsis : Continental Tire the Americas, LLC (Continental Tire) is recalling certain General Altimax RT43, size 175/65R14 82T tires. The tires contain a tire identification number (TIN) that is missing the 3-digit plant code and the 6-symbol manufacturer's identification mark. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 574, "Tire Identification & Recordkeeping." Missing TIN information can make it difficult for tire owners to identify the tire in the event of a recall, increasing the risk of driving with a recalled tire which could result in a crash. Dealers will replace the tires, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed April 3. 2023. Owners may contact Continental Tire's customer service at 1-888-799-2168.
