The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a recall notice on certain Achilles Desert Hawk A/P LT tires.
The recall was issued due to a faulty lower sidewall, which failed to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard requirements.
The NHTSA’s full recall notice is below:
“Pt.Multistrada Arah Sarana, TBK (Multistrada) is recalling certain Achilles Desert Hawk A/P LT tires, size LT215/85 R16 115/112R 10PR, with DOT date code 1915 through date code 3618. The lower sidewall of the tires may separate. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles.” A sidewall separation can cause loss of air pressure, increasing the risk of a crash. Multistrada will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 9, 2018. Owners may contact Multistrada customer service at [email protected] or at [email protected], or by phone at 1-800-944-8414.”
