WASHINGTON — Trailer tire and wheel distributor Trans Texas Tire is recalling 560 Contender-brand 5.70-B lawn, garden and small trailer tires because of possible sidewall mislabeling.
The tires, manufactured for Trans Texas Tire by Qingdao, China-based Qingao Qihang Tyre Co. Ltd., are sold exclusively through Discount Tire, the Mount Pleasant, Texas-based tire distributor told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
They were manufactured between April 1 and May 31, 2018, the company said.
Approximately half of the tires have different ply and psi labels on each sidewall, according to Trans Texas Tire, which does business as Taskmaster Components.
Trans Texas Tire will replace the tires free of charge. It began notifying dealers and owners March 27.
