(Apologies if this is in the wrong place...wasn't sure where to put it.)

Hello everyone,
Just wanted to let you all know about a recall i received in the email this morning. I'm sure everyone's heard of this already, but here's the details in case you need them.

Joe


NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 08T028

Synopsis:
This email is being sent to advise you that Dill Air Control Products (Dill) is recalling certain replacement snap-in rubber valve stems, Models Dill APC TR413, TR414, and TR418, sold between November 2006 and July 2007. These valves may lack the required additive to protect the rubber against deterioration from ozone exposure. As a result, affected valve stems, when subject to high levels of ozone, may weather and crack earlier than normal for this product. Over time, such a crack could progress to the point that it leaks air resulting in a loss of tire pressure. Loss of tire pressure can result in a flat tire and/or loss of vehicle control, which could cause a crash without warning. Dill will notify owners and replace the affected valve stems free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 9, 2008.

Owners may contact Dill toll-free at 1-888-364-2982 or visit http://www.tirevalverecall.net .
