Continental Tire Recall Announced For Possible Tread Separation

The following report is filed with the NHTSA:

Report Receipt Date: AUG 11, 2014

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14T009000

Component(s): Tires

Potential Number of Units Affected: 8,070

Manufacturer: Continental Tire the Americas, LLC.

SUMMARY: Continental Tire the Americas, LLC (Continental) is recalling certain ContiAttack SM, ContiSportAttack, ContiSportAttack2, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Soft, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Medium, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Endurance, and ContiRoadAttack 2 GTW motorcyle tires, in sizes 120/70ZR17 and 120/70R17. For a complete list of affected tire indentification numbers and affected dates of production please see the "Defect Notice (Part 573)" in the Associated Documents area. The subject tires may experience a separation between the tread, belt, and carcass resulting in a loss of tire inflation pressure.
