Ford Trucks: Another Major Tire Recall – CTA Recalls 390,000 Defective Tires

Ford Trucks: Another Major Tire Recall – CTA Recalls 390,000 Defective Tires

Tires on lots of Ford vehicles on the roads right now are not safe.  Again.

 If this rings a bell, it should: faulty tires on Ford vehicles also started making news in much the same way back in 2000 when the Firestone tires placed on Ford vehicles started causing serious injuries and wrongful deaths in lots of motor vehicle accidents all across the country.  It’s something that Firestone itself calls “…the most deadly auto safety crisis in American history.”

CTA Recalls Over 390,000 Defective and Dangerous Tires Already On 2008 and 2009 Ford Trucks

 Continental Tire the Americas (CTA) has voluntarily recalled 390,000 tires that it manufactured and sold to Ford Motor Company, which Ford placed on its 2008 and 2009 light trucks, the Ford F-250 and the Ford F-350

Here are the product specifications for these dangerous tires – if they are on your vehicle, then don’t trust them to be safe.  Call the tire manufacturer if you have questions toll free at 1-888-799-2168 if you need to do so, or check out the FAQs on its Tire Recall webpage

According to CTA, the dangerous tires are:

  • Tire Name:  Continental ContiTrac TR
    Size:  LT275/70R18 125/122S Load range: E  Outline White Letters
    DOT Serial Numbers:   P515 46U0 1807 through P515 46U0 2308

    Size: LT275/70R18 125/122S Load Range :E Black sidewall
