Hercules Recalls Light Truck Tires

Tue, 02/26/2013 - 10:20am

DETROIT (AP) -- Hercules Tire is recalling some light-duty truck tires in the U.S. because the belts and treads can separate from the tires.

The recall covers 10-ply Load Range E tires in the company's All Trac line. All the recalled tires are 16- or 17-inches (40.5 or 43-centimeters) in diameter. They are used mainly on commercial trucks.

Hercules says it's still determining how many tires are affected.

The tires were made in China and sold by the Findlay, Ohio-based Hercules.

Hercules says in documents sent to government safety regulators that the separations could reduce a driver's ability to control a vehicle. At least one crash was reported. It was unclear if anyone has been hurt.

Hercules will replace the tires for free.
