Del-Nat Corporation is recalling certain Chaparral tires used on light duty motor vehicles. The tires being recalled were produced from September 2008 through December 2009. The tires being recalled may suffer from blistering on the sidewall which could cause the tire to experience bubbling or chunking. If this occurs the tire could experience air loss.
There is a potential for a serious auto accident as a result of this defect. This recall is likely to be less effective because many of these tires are on many vehicles that have changed owners and the current owners will not get notice of the recall.
If you are involved in an accident that may have been caused by tire failure it is advisable to search all recalls in order to determine if the tire that failed was subject to a recall.
