Michelin Recalls 100,000 Tires
Michelin has issued a voluntary recall for some of its light truck replacement tires.
Michelin is voluntarily recalling certain sizes of its MICHELIN® LTX® M/S 2, MICHELIN® X® Radial LT2 and MICHELIN®Latitude® Tour tires. These tires are typically found on light trucks and SUVs.
The tires were produced between September 2012 and early June 2013.
Sizes are as follows:
- MICHELIN LTX M/S 2: P275/55R20 111T RBL, P265/65R18 112T and P265/60R18 109T ORWL

Michelin is recalling approximately 100,000 tires in order to retrieve an estimated 2,500 tires (about 2.5 percent of the recalled population).
Affected tires could have partial or full sidewall perforations that could cause them to experience loss of air pressure.
Michelin recommends removal of these tires as soon as possible. To reduce any inconvenience for consumers, Michelin will replace any tires from the list below on their vehicles even if they are not part of the 2,500 known affected tires. The removed tires will be replaced with a similar product free of charge.
To return and replace these tires at no cost, please visit your Michelin dealer for assistance.
