Honda is voluntarily recalling 9,800 2014 Honda Civic LX models to inspect the tires of the vehicles, which may have possible tears in the bead area.
According to this article, “The potential tears occurred when a supplier accidentally pinched the tire beads between the assembly equipment and the steel wheel rims while assembling the tires to the rims, the company said. Tire bead tears may create rapid air loss and tire failure, it said. Because the defect was discovered during a routine factory check, it is unlikely that many of these tires are on the street, according to American Honda. The company said it is unaware of any crashes, injuries or consumer complaints associated with the defect. ”
