2016 Ford F-Series Super Duty Recalled for Tire Flaw

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.

Ford dealers will inspect the tires for damage and replace them, if necessary. The recall is expected to begin on May 9. Owners can contact Ford customer service at 1-800-392-3673.

Edmunds says: Owners of these trucks should take them in for inspection in early May, once they receive their official recall notice.
