 CUMBERLAND, Md., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- A voluntary recall of 76,699 radial auto tires consisting of four sizes in a variety of brand names has been instituted by The Kelly-Springfield Tire Company, according to Dan Hammontree, director of product quality and product service.
 The company said in the interest of safety and public service, it decided to recall the total number of tires from the production cycle involved to assure that it gets back the estimated one percent prone to premature failure and sudden air loss.
 Hammontree said the tires were manufactured in the company's Tyler, Texas, plant the week of Sept. 11, 1994.
 The sizes being recalled are P185/75R14, P195/75R14, 185/70R14, and 195/70R14. The serial numbers on the tire begin with "PL" and end with "374." A complete listing by brand names with the entire 11-digit- serial numbers is attached.
 In addition to following government guidelines for tire recalls, Kelly-Springfield has established a consumer hot line to enable buyers to determine if the tires they have purchased are part of the recall campaign.
 The hot-line phone number is 800-638-5112.
 Hammontree said consumers should return the recalled tires to the stores where they were purchased or to any dealer selling the same brand of tire purchased and they will receive new products without charge.
