Even quality based companies that produce top of the line products sometimes have glitches too.

Yes they are on the link, as well as the Canadian plant code.

Saw it in the pear this morning - totally missed the thread yesterday. This news could use a bump anyway. I'm planning to buy Continental Vanco 2 tires in the spring. I've run them on my van and they are great tires.

Rats. No fresh free tires here, code doesn't match defective tire code.

Yes, that is impressive compared to some of the train wrecks other tire companies are putting out and doing nothing about it.

Apparently their good name and reputation is worth more than 1.2 million tires X $125 (????) = $150,000,000-ish. What a novel concept.

There's another thread on this same topic. Is there any way to merge these two threads?

Glad I have the MS/2 225/75/16. I noted the other recall listed on the M/S 2 but they are 18 and 20 inch tires.

Why? I might get brand new, zero mile, two year newer tires at no charge. That delays my next tire expenditure for two years. Have to go to the lot and check "born on" date.
