Here you can find photo of the sidewall lettering to verify if your tyres are affected.

Why are you having these tyres replaced?

Due to the use of a not specified tread compound material, the tires could potentially have a tread separation. This could result in tread material loss with possible negative effect on vehicle handling. To date, Uniroyal has not received any reports of accidents or injuries in connection with this condition. The exchange program is being initiated voluntarily to avoid any potential risk to vehicle drivers and other road-users. The affected tires were delivered to customers in Germany, the Netherlands and France.
