After receiving 169 complaints about Steeltex R4S and A/T light truck tires, Federal regulators Friday opened a seperate investigation into that brand of Firestone tires.

The company has already recalled 6.5 million tires under three other brands. The Firestone tires being recalled are all 15-inch P235/75R ATX and ATX II tires and all same-sized Wilderness AT tires made at Firestone's Decatur, Ill., plant.

Meanwhile, warranty and claims data led Continental General Tire to announce it would replace for free about 160,000 tires that can lose part of their tread. About 140,000 of the 16-inch ContiTrac AS tires were original equipment on about 38,000 1998 and 1999 model year Lincoln Navigators made by Ford Motor Co. Another 20,000 were sold as replacement tires.

In addition to those tires under recall, Federal investigators said the Firestone tires they were looking at in the first Firestone investigation were sold under more than three dozen different names. Tires affected by their probe, but not recalled, include all sizes of the following models:
