Approximately 435 model year 2019 Freightliner Cascadia trucks are being recalled over potential problems with certain Continental tires, according to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

One recall affects approximately 425 of the trucks equipped with Continental Hybrid HS3, size 11R22.5 Load Range G tires. The recall from Daimler Trucks North America states the tire cords may be visible through the innerliner in these tires, which could cause a sudden loss of air.

A separate recall affects only about 10 trucks equipped with Continental Coach HA3, size 315/80R22.5 157/154 L tires with the same issue.

DTNA says it will begin notifying owners on Sept. 15, and Continental authorized service facilities will inspect and replace the tires for free.

Owners can contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL-778 or FL-779, or Continental customer service at 1-888-799-2168.

NHTSA’s recall numbers are 18V-478 and 18V-479.
