Pirelli Recalls racing tyres.
Pirelli Tire L.L.C. is voluntarily recalling 42 P Zero Trofeo track tyres for lacking a date code.
The tyres in question — in size 225/50ZR15 91Y — were manufactured between April 1 and April 7, 2015, at Pirelli’s factory in Kocaeli, Turkey, Pirelli told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
They are state-of-the-art track tyres that have relatively short useful lives because of their design and specialized usage, according to the tyre maker.
After the mold was placed in service, the date code insert fell out of the cavity, Pirelli said. The lack of a date code makes it more difficult to identify the tyres in case of a safety recall.
