March 8, 2010 – According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Office of Defect Investigations (ODI), Pep Boys has notified NHTSA about a noncompliance in certain Definity Dakota H/T tires, size 245/70R/17, produced between November 15 and November 28, 2009.
These tires fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires For Light Vehicles.” At various mileages, the subject tires may develop and exhibit tread chunking or cracking in the tread shoulder area. Tread chunks may separate from the tire casing resulting in body damage to the vehicle or the driver may lose control resulting in a crash.
