NHTSA Campaign Number: 16T018000
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,190
Pirelli Tire LLC (Pirelli) is recalling certain P Zero All Season tires, size 275/40R19 101W, manufactured February 29, 2016, to October 29, 2016, as an original equipment fitment exclusively for certain Maserati cars. Due to an incorrect carcass component, the affected tires may develop cracks in their lower sidewall, possibly resulting in a loss of air.
A loss of air may result in tire failure or a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Pirelli will notify Maserati owners and the dealers that purchased the tires as replacements. Pirelli will work with Maserati to replace the tires, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2016. Owners may contact Pirelli customer service at 1-706-368-5800.
