Double Camel, in cooperation with Lionshead Specialty Tire & Wheel, has recalled 1,440 Vail Sport ST LH 99 tubeless trailer tires, size 225/75D15, load range D, manufactured from July 14, 2013, through July 27, 2013.
According to NHTSA records, on May 7, 2014, Double Camel increased the recall to include an additional 38,129 Vail Sport ST LH 99 tires encompassing build dates from November 20, 2011, through September 21, 2013. The total population of the tires being recalled is now 39,569.
“The original population of tires may fail under prolonged use and may become unseated from the rims and the additional population of tires may be more susceptible to failure due to road hazards,” said the NHTSA record.
