Another tire recall

This may be more of interest to people using pick-up to tow with but there may be a few Class-C owners too

There is a new tire recall of LT type tires

Federal Corporation (Federal) is recalling certain model Couragia A/T LT245/75R16 120/116Q 10PR tires manufactured May 2013 through April 2014, and with sidewall stampings of DOT UXA3 and calendar weeks of 1913 through 1414. The affected tires may experience cracks in the shoulder caused by separation of the steel belt edge. Thus, these tires fail to to comply to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles." Shoulder cracks in a tire may result in an unexpected loss of tire pressure, increasing the risk of a crash. Federal Corporation will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected tires with new tires, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, July 15, 2014. Owners may contact Federal at 1-855-444-8235.

The DOT serial indicates the tires were made in Taiwan
