Les Schwab is recalling certain steel-belted radial truck tires that Les Schwab retreaded for their customers. The vulcanizing compound used during the retreading may not have been completely cured, resulting in incomplete adhesion of the tread to tire casing. The potentially affected retreaded tires were manufactured at Les Schwab's three retread facilities during calendar weeks 42 through 50 of 2017 and have the DOTR numbers: RDNJ4217RS - RDNJ5017RS, RNVK4417RS - RNVK5017RS and RCEE4217RS - RCEE5017RS.
Les Schwab will notify the customers that had their tires retreaded, and will exchange the affected tires for properly retreaded ones, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Les Schwab at 1-541-447-4136.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
