(RNN) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a tire recall for some Continental truck tires.

Continental Tire is recalling certain General Tire Grabber light truck tires, size 33x12.50R18 LT 118Q, Load Range E.

The tires were manufactured May 3, 2015, to May 16, 2015, and are sold as replacement tires.

The tires may have insufficient adhesion within the belt package, resulting in tread wear, tread bulging and possible tread separation.

The insufficient adhesion can also cause partial or full tread/belt loss, increasing the risk of a crash.

Continental will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires free of charge, according to the company.

The recall is expected to begin Feb. 10, 2017. People who own the tires may contact Continental customer service at 1-888-799-2168.
