Yokohama Ry023 2018 12 05 11 16Yokohama Tire Corporation announced this week it is recalling certain commercial truck tires for potential tread separation issues, according to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The company says approximately 529 Yokohama RY023 tires, size 295/75R22.5 (14G) that have DOT date code 2318 may have the wrong rubber compound, which could cause the tread to separate from the casing.

Yokohama has started notifying owners of affected tires, and dealers will inspect and replace the tires for free if necessary.

Owners can contact Yokohama customer service at 1-800-722-9888. NHTSA’s recall number is 18T-016.
