The Texas Attorney General is urging you to check your tires, they could be dangerous.

The tires are made by a company in China and distributed in the United States under several names, including Westlake, YKS, and Compass.

The tires were sold from 2002 to 2006 for light trucks, sports utility vehicles, and vans, and could be in danger of tread separation.

More than 50 thousand of the potentially unsafe tires are believed to have been sold in Texas.

If you have any of these tires, immediately contact the dealer where you bought them.

If the dealer is more than 50 miles away, ask the closest tire shop or mechanic to inspect your tires.
