Giti recalls 250,000 tires; Continental recalls 14,500

A quarter of a million Primewell, GT Radial and Dextero tires from Giti Tire USA and almost 15,000 Crosscontact LX20 tires from Continental are being recalled due to faults.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Giti Tire’s recall

Giti Tire US is recalling several imported brands manufactured by P.T. Gajah Tunggal TBK in Indonesia. The affected replacement passenger car tires may develop cracks in the lower sidewall, potentially resulting in a loss of air — increasing the risk of sudden tire failure and crash.

Continental’s recall

Continental Tire is recalling certain Crosscontact LX20 tires in size P275/55R20 111S, manufactured between May 3, 2015, and May 9, 2015.

The tires, sold as replacement tires as well as original equipment on certain General Motors full size trucks and SUVs, may have insufficient adhesion within the belt package, resulting in tread wear, vibration, noise, or bulging areas on the tire. The insufficient adhesion can cause partial or full tread or belt loss, increasing the risk of a crash.

Continental will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule to the NHTSA. Owners may contact Continental customer service at 1-888-799-2168 or the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or the recall page on the NHTSA website.
