Federal Corporation is recalling certain Couragia A/T tires, size P265/75R16 116S, DOT Serial Numbers UX77 3210-UX770813. In the affected tires, excessive heat causes tread shoulder chunking. Thus, these tires fail to conform to the durability test requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles."

Tire shoulder tread chunking could cause a tire failure and increase the risk of a crash

Federal Corporation will notify owners and will replace the tires, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin at the end of April 2013.
