A defective tire recall has been issued for approximately 1,495 Hankook Dynapro MT LT325/60R18 RT03 tires manufactured from August 22, 2011 through September 22, 2013.  The affected tires may develop a separation at the tread/belt edge which can result in tire failure, significantly increasing the risk of a catastrophic injury.  

This recall was expected to begin sometime in November 2013.  Hankook will notify tire owners and replace defective tires free of charge.  Owners may contact Hankook directly at 1-800-426-5665.  Additional details can also be found by referencing NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 13T008000.
