TENNESSEE VALLEY (WHNT) – Do you have Kumho tires on your vehicle? If so, you should check to see if they have been recalled due to a safety issue.

Kumho Tire U.S.A., Inc. is recalling certain Kumho Solus KH25 passenger car tires, size 225/45R17, produced in the time frame of August 21, 2011 through June 23, 2012.

The affected tires could develop cracking in the sidewall, which could result in air loss. Rapid air loss while the vehicle is in use may result in a tire failure that could cause a crash.

Kumho will notify owners by mail, instructing them how to return the tires and receive reimbursement. The safety recall is expected to begin on May 6, 2013. Owners may contact Kumho at 1-909-428-3999.
