Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. and Nitto Tire U.S.A., Inc. are recalling selected Toyo Versado CUV, Toyo Versado LX II, Toyo Open Country A/T, Toyo Tourevo LS II and Nitto Terra Grappler tires that were distributed to retailers across the U.S. with a rubber chemical mixture that does not meet the company’s specifications.

As a consequence, sections of the tread may become detached, potentially causing loss of vehicle control and a crash.

Roughly 4,891 tires are subject to the recall; about 588 were produced using the out-of-spec rubber.

The recalled tires were manufactured at the Toyo Tire & Rubber Co., Ltd. plant in Sendai, Japan during a two-week period in September of 2010. They can be identified by the “Made in Japan” stamp and the numbers “3810” or “3910” at the end of the DOT serial number, both located on the tire sidewall.

Tires produced before and after this period are not involved. Tires with the “Made in U.S.A” stamp on the sidewall are not being recalled.

Affected consumers will have their recalled tires replaced at no charge.
