Richmond, BC – Toyo Tire Canada Inc. has announced a safety recall campaign on approximately 10,000 Toyo Tires and Nitto brand tires intended for light trucks, SUVs and vans including those used in commercial applications.

The recall campaign covers select Toyo Open Country H/T with Tuff Duty tires manufactured between November 2008 and June 2013, and select Nitto Dura GrapplerHighway Terrain tires manufactured between May 2007 and April 2012. 

In a small number of these recall tires, production variances in the belt package during the relevant production periods may have created conditions that may put undue stress on the belt edge, potentially contributing to separation of the belts. Drivers may experience vibration or uneven tire wear during early stages of separation. If undetected, this condition may potentially contribute to a tread/belt separation and/or loss of inflation pressure, which may increase the risk of tire failure and a vehicle crash.

The recall tires were manufactured at our plant in Sendai, Japan (CX) and in Kuwana, Japan (N3) and can be identified by examining the sidewall stamping for the Brand, Model, Size, the “Made in Japan” mark, and the Tire Identification Number (“TIN”), which includes the plant code (i.e., immediately following the “DOT” mark), and the manufacture date (i.e., last 4 digits of the TIN). Please see the chart below for details.

Owners of affected tires should return to their tire dealer as soon as possible for free replacement tires. 

Additional information, including a list of authorized dealers and how to read a tire sidewall, can be found on the respective tire brand websites:  and
