Alabama Attorney General Troy King has alerted Alabama citizens to the fact that the federal government is warning drivers that they may have faulty tires that could be vulnerable to belt and or tread separation.

As reported, the tires in question are for light trucks, sport utility vehicles and vans. In June, Foreign Tire Sales informed federal highway officials that some tires manufactured in China under the names Westlake, Compass, and YKS may not hold belts in place.

So far, there has not been a recall, but one surely will come very soon.

The Attorney General, in a statement, said the affected tires have a tire size starting with “LT” or light truck, as well as a DOT number that starts with “7D” and ends in either “02”, “03”, “04”, or “05”.

Additional information can be obtained from the Federal Trade Commission web site at http://www-dot-foreigntire-dot-com.

It‘s good to see Alabama’s top law enforcement officer getting involved with a safety issue on behalf of Alabama citizens.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
