The model name, number, tire ID, and production date code also are on the sidewalls. A table on the Pirelli website and in a recall notice helps identify affected SKUs. 

Pirelli has received one report of rapid air loss, resulting in a minor injury.

Consumers should immediately stop using the tires and contact Pirelli to receive a free replacement or a full refund. Pirelli can be reached at 800-622-2390 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday. The company also can be reached by email at
