Hyundai Motor America is recalling 11,142 2015 model-year Genesis vehicles so dealers can replace Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 tires that are at risk for developing cracks in the tire sidewall, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The cars in question were manufactured from March 3, 2014, to Feb. 9, 2015, and are equipped with Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 tires installed as original equipment.

Hyundai dealers will replace the factory tires with tires of another brand, free of charge, according to NHTSA. The recall is expected to begin on Feb. 19.

Vehicle owners can reach Hyundai customer service at (855) 671-3059. Hyundai's number for this recall is 138.
