Double Camel Recalls 4,000 More Trailer Tires

NHTSA_resizedDouble Camel, in cooperation with Lionshead Specialty Tire & Wheel, has recalled 4,000 Vail Sport ST LH 99 tubeless trailer tires, size 225/75D15, manufactured from April 2012 through February 2013.

According to NHTSA records, “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 blow out, increasing the risk of a crash,” said the NHTSA record.

These tires are the same brand, size and type as tires recently recalled by Double Camel and Lionshead. In addition, their manufacture dates overlap those tires previously recalled. That recall stated that tubeless trailer tires manufactured by Double Camel and Lionshead from November 20, 2011, through September 21, 2013, may become unseated from the rims.

Lionshead is to notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2014. Owners may contact Lionshead at 1-574-533-6169.
