Kumho Tire U.S.A., Inc. (Kumho) is recalling certain Kumho Solus KH25 passenger car tires, size 225/45R17, produced between August 21, 2011 and June 23, 2012. All tires associated with this recall relate to Kumho Tire U.S.A., Inc.’s initial recall for these tires. The affected tires were rendered unusable by being punctured with 3 drill holes through the tread surface and sent to Liberty Tire Recycling, LLC (Liberty) for disposal. Instead of disposing of the tires, Liberty sold these tires as “used tires” to various tire wholesaler/distributors in New York, Texas, North Carolina and Puerto Rico.
The tires resold by Liberty have 3 drill hole punctures through the tread surface that if repaired, may not adhere to specific Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) standards for tire repairs, which could result in rapid air loss while the vehicle is in use and result in a tire failure that could cause a crash, injury or death.
Owners may contact Kumho directly at 1-909-428-3358.
