DETROIT (AP) - Hercules Tire is recalling some light-duty truck tires in the U.S. because the belts and treads can separate from the tires.
The recall covers 10-ply Load Range E tires in the company's All Trac line. All the recalled tires are 16- or 17-inches in diameter. They are used mainly on commercial trucks.

Hercules says it's still determining how many tires are affected.
The tires were made in China and sold by the Findlay, Ohio-based Hercules.

Hercules says in documents sent to government safety regulators that the separations could reduce a driver's ability to control a vehicle. At least one crash was reported. It was unclear if anyone has been hurt.

Hercules will replace the tires for free. Owners can call the company at (888) 965-5795.
