WASHINGTON — Sumitomo Rubber USA L.L.C. is recalling seven Dunlop Sportmax Q3+ motorcycle tires, size 120/70ZR17 58W, because of possible air pockets in the shoulder region.
These air pockets could affect the handling and steering of the motorcycle, and with continued use could cause tread chunking, Sumitomo told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Sumitomo will notify retailers and customers starting in June, and will replace the tires free of charge. Owners may contact Dunlop Motorcycle Tires at 800-845-8378.
