Hercules recalling 90,000 SUV tires
Detroit — An Ohio company is recalling about 90,000 SUV tires because the tread can separate, causing a loss of air and increasing the risk of a crash.
The recall covers certain 15- and 16-inch Hercules Tire & Rubber Co. All Trac A/T tires made from June of 2008 to May of 2010.
The Findlay, Ohio, company says in documents filed with U.S. safety regulators that dealers will replace the tires with a newer version that has a full nylon cap. The recalled tires have a partial nylon cap.
The recall was to start this month. It came after an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
It was unclear if there have been any crashes or injuries. A message was left Thursday seeking comment from the company.
