Nitto Brand Dura Grappler Tire Recall

Nitto Tire Company has voluntarily recalled some of its Nitto Dura Grappler Dura-Belt tires due to manufacturing defects. The problem with the defective tires is that the tread and the belt could get separated. If this happens, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, then tire pressure could suddenly drop. This is a dangerous defect which could cause a vehicle crash. If you have Nitto tires, and you haven’t already checked them, you should do so right away.
