Nexen is recalling numerous Winguard Sport and Snow'G3 winter tires.

The tread of the tires can detach. 

The right tires are an important safety aspect in a car.

If the tires are too old or no longer have enough profile, this can have dramatic consequences.

In addition, the tires should always be adapted to the season.

Winter tires are the right choice in the cold months, while summer tires are better for higher temperatures.

But if the tire itself is damaged, that doesn't help much either, which is why Nexen is now recalling numerous winter tires.

The reason for the recall is a manufacturing defect in numerous products from a factory in the Czech Republic.

As the manufacturer explained, there is a risk that a selective tread detachment can occur.

This in turn can lead to vehicle instability.

Nexen recalls winter tires: tread can detach

The recalled winter tires were manufactured in calendar week 29 of 2020.

The Winguard Sport 2 and the Winguard Snow'G3 are affected in various versions.

Specifically, Nexen is recalling winter tires with the corresponding DOT numbers:

  • 175/70R14 88T NEXEN WINGUARD Snow G3: DOT 035 HR DAAL 2920, DOT 035 HR DAAR 2920, DOT 035 HR DABL 2920, DOT 035 HR DABR 2920

  • 205/40R17 84V NEXEN WINGUARD Sport 2: DOT 035 6C AMBL 2920, DOT 035 6C AMBR 2920

  • 225/55R17 101V NEXEN WINGUARD Sport 2: DOT 035 UP BABL 2920, DOT 035 UP BABR 2920

  • 235/45R17 97V NEXEN WINGUARD Sport 2: DOT 035 0L BAHL 2920, DOT 035 0L BAHR 2920

  • 235/45R18 98V NEXEN WINGUARD Sport 2: DOT 035 VL AAAL 2920, DOT 035 VL AAAR 2920

The DOT number can be found on the sidewalls of winter tires.

In the case of the recalled tires, this begins with the numbers 035, which indicate the place of production in the Czech Republic.

The four numbers at the end of the DOT number indicate the production period (week/year).

Nexen offers affected customers an exchange program.

The tire manufacturer recommends that the replacement be arranged at the point of purchase as soon as possible.

There are no costs for the customers.

The tires were sold in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Slovakia, Serbia, Montenegro and the Czech Republic.
