Yokohama Tire Corporation (Yokohama) is recalling certain AVID Touring S tires, size 215/65R16 98T SL, produced between February 2009 and April 2009. The tires may have been produced with an irregular geometry in the casing turn up area above the tire bead in the lower sidewall. This irregular geometry may lead to a lower sidewall crack resulting in a rapid loss of tire inflation.
Rapid air loss while the vehicle is in use may result in a tire failure that could cause a crash, injury or death
The safety recall began on October 26, 2012. Owners may contact Yokohama at 1-888-589-3348.
