Once Again:Recall Urged of Chinese Tires That Could Fall Apart on Road

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,286736,00.html

Quote:
Federal safety officials have ordered a New Jersey tire importer to recall as many as 450,000 tires that it bought from a Chinese manufacturer and sold to U.S. distributors.
What's next. When are we going to learn, cheap labor, cheaply made products.

Foreign Tire Sales Inc. (FTS), of Union, said an unknown number of the light truck radials it imported since 2002 from Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co., of Hangzhou, China, could suffer tread separation meaning the tires could fall apart on the road a problem that led to the nation's largest tire recall in 2000.
According to a letter FTS sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Hangzhou tires at issue were sold under at least four brand names Westlake, Compass, Telluride and YKS in these sizes: LT235/75R-15; LT225/75R-16; LT235/85R-16; LT245/75R-16; LT265/75R-16; and LT3X10.5-15
There is a list that tells other lists sizes, manufacturer, importers involved.
