Double Camel in cooperation with Lionshead Specialty Tire & Wheel LLC is recalling certain Vail Sport ST LH 99 tubeless trailer tires, size 225/75D15, load range D, DOT code 69, manufactured from July 14, 2013, through July 27, 2013, (and a sidewall date code 2813 or 2913), according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected tires may fail under prolonged use and may become unseated from the rims.
Failure or unseating of the tire increases the risk of a crash.

Due to the risk of failure, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 119, “New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars.”

Lionshead will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires with compliant ones. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Customers may contact Lionshead at 1-574-533-6169.
