The tires being recalled at Continental ContiMotion radials in size 180/60R16 M/C 74H that were sold in the replacement market in 2011 and 2012, primarily in the United States. Small quantities were also sold in other markets.

The tires are identified by the DOT serial numbers H60LJJE5110 through H60LJJE3811.

According to the notice, the tires are being called back because “under certain service conditions these tires may experience uneven wear, groove cracking and in some cases belt lift, which can lead to a loss of inflation pressure and a potential loss of control that could lead to an accident,” CTA said. “These service conditions have been observed with Honda Gold Wing 1800 motorcycles rear tire fitment, particularly under conditions of overloading and/or underinflation.”
