*To verify the full list of affected DOT codes, please see Appendix A.

Tires from four production weeks were identified with issues, but in an abundance of caution, Continental is recalling all potentially affected tires from the start of production. The tires were identified as having a potential issue which could cause loss of internal pressure through the sidewall resulting in slow or rapid deflation. Since the safety of our customers is paramount at Continental, we have decided to voluntarily issue a safety recall for these tires. No personal injuries or accidents have been reported.

The last four digits of the DOT serial numbers indicate the production period (week/year). The DOT Codes listed in the table above are covered by this exchange program. No other tire sizes, production periods or product lines are affected.


Safety Warning: We strongly encourage owners of potentially affected tires to remove the tires from service immediately. Replacement tires and the cost for dismounting, mounting, and balancing will be covered by the exchange program at no cost to the customer.

Locating the DOT Code: The DOT code or Tire Identification Number (TIN) is printed on the tire sidewall on one side of the tire. For example:

Required Actions

If you are the owner of an affected tire:

  1. All affected tires must be removed from service immediately.
  2. Arrangements for immediate tire replacement should be made with the most logical Continental dealer.

 

Dealer Process to Replace Affected Tires: 

  1. Recommended tires for replacement are: 315/80R22.5 HSR2 SA or Conti Coach HA3 with non-affected DOT codes. Alternatively, replacements could be an equivalent 315/80R22.5 all-position coach tire in Load Range L. Appropriate replacement tires should be selected based on fleet segment and application.

    a.
    315/80R22.5 HSR2 SA – The Article# will not be 05120980000. Instead, we will use the Article# for the intelligent tire (with active sensor). This Article# is to be determined.

    b. 315/80R22.5 Conti Coach HA3 – The Article# will not be 05110750000. Instead, we will use the Article# for the intelligent tire (with active sensor). This Article# is to be determined.

  2. Servicing dealer replaces tires. If a dealer does not have a replacement tire in stock, replacements can be expedited to them. Dealer can call the Continental Warranty Center at+1 (618) 242-7398 for guidance or credit processing prior to work if required. The customer should not be charged for products or services related to this action.

  3. Dealer follows the normal warranty process, sending warranty forms and service invoices by fax to +1 (618) 242-7491 or via email trucktires@conti-na.com. Warranty process instructions are available from the Continental Warranty Center or your Continental sales representative.

  4. Dealer ships affected tires to the Continental Warranty Center through OD:
