Continental Submits Massive Tyre Recall for ‘Potential Groove Cracks’

Continental has had to take a bit of a step back with this one. 

Just a few days ago, the German parts manufacturing company handed over a recall for a number of units from their TKC, ContiGo!, K62 and LB lines.

The move itself is standard integrity for a quality company like Continental, though this particular recall likely hurt a bit more than usual, with ‘a total of 68,770 [affected] tires manufactured from January 06, 2019 to April 30, 2022,’ according to ADVPulse.

Affected by the list?

Expect to get a poke from Continental America, who will “notify owners and replace the potentially defective tires with ‘substantially similar ones’ not affected by the recall, free of charge.”

If you already replaced the tires, the company will reimburse you regardless.
