The problem: vehicles involved in this tire recall campaign were delivered with Continental brand tires that were overcured during the manufacturing process.
The hazards: Continental claims that overcured tires “may experience a carcass break in the sidewall with sudden air loss or could develop a belt edge separation which could lead to partial or full tread/belt loss.” A tire failure or sudden loss of air pressure could increase the risk of a crash.
The fix: dealers will inspect affected Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC vehicles and replace tires that have DOT number and production mold number combinations that reflect the defective units identified by Continental.
Affected components: Continental brand tires.
