NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12T006
PT. Multistrada Arah Sarana is recalling certain Achilles Desert Hawk A/P light truck tires, sizes LT215/85R16 115/112L 10PR, LT235/85R16 120/116L 10PR, LT225/75R16 115/112L 10PR, produced between January 2010 and November 2011, and Radar Radial RLT-9 light truck radial tires produced from December 30, 2009, through January 31, 2011. The Achilles tires were produced with a narrow bead design which can cause blistering on the lower sidewall. The Radar tires have defective sidewall design which may lead to tread separation. Accordingly, the tires fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles." These tires may experience blistering on their sidewall or tread separation that may cause sudden loss of air, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. PT. Multistrada Arah Sarana will notify owners, and replace the noncompliant tires with a similar tire free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during April 2012. Owners may contact PT. Multistrada Arah Sarana Customer Hotline at 1-800-944-8414.
