Canadian Tire has issued a recall on MotoMaster Eliminator X-Trail AT Tires, model numbers 202-2097 and 202-2098.
In the announcement, the retail company stated that some of the tires sold were missing the 3PMS symbol from the tire’s sidewall, due to a manufacturing issue. 3PMS stands for three-peak mountain snowflake. The symbol is a six-pointed snowflake within a three-peak mountain, typically found beneath the tire’s X-Trail lettering.
The 3PMS symbol indicates that the tire has been tested for acceleration on medium-packed snow. Despite missing the symbol, Canadian Tire emphasized this is a non-safety-related recall, meaning the tires have been properly tested and meet Transport Canada requirements.
If you did purchase one of these tires, the company asks “that you return it to the store of purchase for a tire inspection. If the check verifies that this recall impacts you, the dealer will replace your tires with the same tire at no cost to you.”
The free replacement is available to customers until May 13.
