AKRON, Ohio, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is recalling about 41,000 of its Wrangler Silent Armor tires it manufactured in 2009, a U.S. agency said Saturday.

The National Transportation Safety Administration said on its Web site that Goodyear was recalling the tires because of possible partial tread separation that could lead to vehicle damage when the separated tread strikes the vehicle or could cause a tire failure resulting in a vehicle crash.

The recall is for Wrangler Silent Armor tire sizes LT235/80R17 LRE, LT325/60R18 LRE, LT275/70R18 LRE, LT265/70R17 LRE, LT245/75R17 LRE AND LT285/70R17 LRD that were produced from March 31 through May 31 in 2009.

Goodyear will notify owners and replace the tires free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by March 22. Owners may contact Goodyear at 1-800-592-3267 or the NTSB's Vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
