ST225/75D15 Recall Update Now two

NHTSA Campaign ID Number : 14T001

Synopsis Double Camel, in cooperation with Lionshead Specialty Tire & Wheel LLC (Lionshead), notified the agency on January 21, 2014 that they are recalling 1,440 Vail Sport ST LH 99 tubeless trailer tires, size 225/75D15, load range D, DOT code 69, manufactured from July 14, 2013, through July 27, 2013 (and a sidewall date code 2813 or 2913). On May 7, 2014, Double Camel increased the recall to include an additional 38,129 Vail Sport ST LH 99 tires encompassing build dates from November 20, 2011, through September 21, 2013 (dates codes 4711 through 3713). The total population of the tires being recalled is now 39,569. The original population of tires may fail under prolonged use and may become unseated from the rims and the additional population of tires may be more susceptible to failure due to road hazards. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 119, "New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars." Tire damage from road hazards, failure from prolonged use or unseating of the tire from the rim increases the risk of a crash. Lionshead will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires with compliant ones. The recall of the initial population of tires began in February 2014. The recall for the expanded population of tires is expected to begin in June 2014. Customers may contact Lionshead at 1-574-533-6169. 


SECOND RECALL  14T003
Synopsis : Double Camel, in cooperation with Lionshead Specialty Tire & Wheel LLC (Lionshead), is recalling certain Vail Sport ST LH 99 tubeless trailer tires, size 225/75D15, manufactured from April 2012 through February 2013. The affected tires may not be marked with the load range letter designation. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 119, "New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars." Tires that are missing the load range designation may cause the owner to unknowingly overload the tires, resulting in a blow out, increasing the risk of a crash. Lionshead will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2014. Owners may contact Lionshead at 1-574-533-6169.
