    Harbor Freight Tools recalls 173,000 trailer tires | Rubber and Plastics News

    WASHINGTON—Discount tool retailer Harbor Freight Tools is recalling 173,557 Innova Ultra Runner and Far East brand replacement trailer utility tires, which were sold mounted on replacement trailer rims.

    The recall covers Innova Ultra Runner tires in sizes 5.3x12 and 4.80/4.00x12 (manufactured between Jan. 1, 2014, and Sept. 20, 2017) and Far East tires in size 4.80/4.00x12 (produced between Jan. 1, 2014, and Dec. 31, 2016), Harbor Freight Tools said.
    Apparently all trailers and wheels have been pulled off their site.

    Still no trailers on sale at HF, interesting to see what the follow On is.

    Paint has been outside a couple months and seems to be holding up well, so

    Re: Harbor Freight Trailer Containment Thread

    This just in. Driving up 89 when a guy pulls up alongside, beeps, and points back at the Trailer.

    The bracket holding the l light and license plate broke off and was sliding along the ground. Must have just happened as there is little wear.

    Gotta find ones more rugged.

    Can the lights be mounted closer to the Trailer frame?

    When to Home Depot and bought two welded steel brackets like these. Gotta mount them up as a snowmobile has to go in for service.

    Heavy Duty shelf bracket

    Probably going to upgrade as the snow machines tow well but are a hassle to load.

    Test fit and looks like a good upgrade. Metal bracket extends width of lens to protect it. Used one original bracket hole and drilled another. Top of lamp is about 1/4” below load height.

    Those brackets in mine were super rusty, I lightly bumped into one the other day and it snapped the light off. I'll probably replace with those shelf brackets too, thanks.

    Just got the recall letter. The 4.8x12 tires will be in stores 12/18/17 and the 5.3 1/3/18. Tires are no charge but they are not paying for the mounting. We bought a spare for good measure but will change them before it warms up.

    This little trailer is so light and handy that we may keep it even if we get a larger one.
