Tires that have cords visible through the inner liner may experience air penetration through the inner liner resulting in a bulge or blister in the sidewall. With continued use, the tire could experience slow or rapid air loss, which could result in loss of vehicle control potentially leading to a risk of serious injury or death.
Continental will notify owners, and dealers will install equivalent tires, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2018. Owners may contact Continental customer service at 1-800-726-7113. [No reported manufacturer recall number. NHTSA recall number: 18T-008.]
