Continental Tyre is recalling 93,959 Continental, General, and Barum brand tyres sold as original, or replacement equipment to consumers.

According to the manufacturer, the affected tyres were cured for too long during production.

Over-cured tyres may develop a break in the sidewall, resulting in sudden air loss or a belt edge separation which could lead to a tread/belt loss.

Either condition can cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash, said Continental Tyres.

In regard to what to do in correcting the factory error, Continental Tyre says it will notify affected owners who purchased the products as replacement equipment.

Various vehicle manufacturers will conduct recalls for vehicles equipped with these tires at the time of purchase.

They will be inspected to verify that they are affected, and will be replaced, as necessary, free of charge, report stated.

The current recall is expected to begin April 5, 2021, and owners may contact Continental Tyre Customer Service on (888) 799-2168.
