The problem: vehicles affected by this recall were already part of a previous Continental recall to address overcured tires, however due to an omission in the initial service bulletin, dealers may have failed to identify and replace affected tires on certain 2019 model year Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra truck that should have been involved in that campaign.
The hazards: Continental Tires determined the tires involved in this recall may have been overcured during the manufacturing process. Overcured tires may experience 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. These conditions may increase the risk of a crash.
The fix: dealers will inspect vehicles and replace tires that have DOT number and production mold number combinations that are identified in the Continental recall. The tires will be replaced at no cost to the vehicle owner.
Affected components: Continental brand tires.
Number of affected vehicles: it is currently not clear how many Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 trucks were shipped with overcured Continental tires.
Next steps: GM will notify owners of affected trucks vehicles and instruct them to make an appointment with their dealer. If owners are unsure whether or not their vehicle is affected by this tire recall, they can visit my.gm.com/
