    I just picked up a rear Metzler 880 Marathon tire with the stamping of
    130/90 B 16 M/C 73H date code 3308

    Is this one of the tires in the recall?

    The ones I see online have a TL in the number. What is the TL?

    I think that they are fine. Just checking because I am having them installed next week.
