Ford recalling new Super Duty pickups to look at tires

Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 2,600 2016 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles to inspect and replace tires as needed.

Ford says in its recall notice, in certain vehicles tires could have been damaged from a conveyor during assembly. In some cases, the sidewall damage could cause a rupture during use, resulting in rapid air loss and increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents, injuries or fires related to this condition.

Affected vehicles include certain 2016 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles built at Kentucky Truck Plant, April 5, 2016 through April 10, 2016. There are 2,596 vehicles affected by this issue, including 2,288 in the U.S. and federalized territories, 271 in Canada and 37 in Mexico.

Dealers will inspect the tires for inboard sidewall damage and replace as needed at no cost to the customer.
