Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. is recalling certain Solus KH16 tires in size P225/65R17 because the tire belts may separate under severe conditions.

Kumho says the recall affects 1,773 tires. Based on the inspection of returned tires and random testing, the tires, which were manufactured at the company's plant in Macon, Ga., don't meet the internal high speed test for belt separation. Kumho says incorrect material was used in the subject tires during the manufacturing process during the 13th week of 2017.

The affected tires were produced between March 26, 2017, and April 1, 2017.

Kumho will notify owners, and dealers will replace all affected tires, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Kumho customer service at 1-800-445-8646.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) campaign number for this recall is 18T004000.
Owners also may contact the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to

Wouldn't this be an OEM tire on Dodge Grand Caravans?

They fit Kumhos in that size on them at the factory.

It could be a different part number. I have seen it a lot where the OEM fitted tires and the replacements have a different article/part number even when they are the same model of tire.
