Continental TKC80 Recall

DRugerH

Well travelled
All, I just received a notice from Amazon that Continental has recalled the TKC80 tire, as well as others. I thought I would post that here in case anyone else has these tires on their Himalayan: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls?nhtsaId=22T006000

I just put this tire on my Himalayan, ahead of the Trans-Wisconsin Adventure Trail ride I am doing next month. I ended up ordering a Pirelli MT21 for the front. I have the MT21 on the back, but when I ordered my tires last month, nobody had the front in stock. Now that I already spent $100 on the Continental, everyone has the Pirelli. Anyhow, I'm not going to wait for Continental to replace my tire. I'm just going to swap the tire out when they ship it out, and sell it.
