Vehicles Affected: Approximately 30 model-year 2020 Ford F-150 pickup trucks equipped with 17-inch spare tires
The Problem: The spare tire could have been damaged when it was installed on the rim, which can cause the tire to rapidly lose air pressure or detach from the wheel, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the spare tire for free.
What Owners Should Do: Ford will begin notifying owners Jan. 13. Owners can call the automaker at 800-392-3673, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
