The vehicles being recalled were made from January 2004 through August 2006. This follows recent demands by the NHTSA for a nationwide recall among several auto makers.

The recall is being voluntarily made, and includes tires made under both the Nitto and Toyo Tires brands for SUVs, light trucks, and vans. With these tires, it is possible the belt or tread can separate and the tire could potentially lose pressure, both of which could then possibly lead to the tire itself failing and a potential crash.
