DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford is recalling 2,596 2016 Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks in North America and Mexico to inspect and replace tires as needed, the automaker said.
"In certain vehicles, tires could have been damaged from a conveyor during assembly," Ford said in a statement. "In some cases, the sidewall damage could cause a rupture during use, resulting in rapid air loss and increasing the risk of a crash."
There are no accidents or injuries linked to the recall.
The affected trucks were built at the Kentucky Truck Plant from April 5, 2016 through April 10, 2016.
Edmunds says: Owners of these trucks should take them in for inspection in early May, once they receive their official recall notice.
