Michelin Tire Recall-Service Center Recommendation?

My Forester 3121ds has the Michelin tires that have been recently recalled. Can anybody recommend a reputable authorized Michelin/Ford service center that can replace these tires (and has the proper lifts and vehicle bays) to work on a motorhome? We live in the Northern Virginia area, but if there is a highly recommended place within a couple hundred miles of us, I'd be happy to travel there to get some good work done.

Thank you in advance!

Tire: Michelin LTX M/S LT225/75R16 115/112R LRE

I had my recalled tires replaced at a Michelin dealer. I called around to make sure they could work on the Lexington and had tires in stock. Good luck.

Wasn't there a phone number on the recall that would give closest authorized dealer?
Have you tried search on internet?

Any Michelin dealer could do it, they are just going to use a floor jack...

Gljurczyk is correct. David's Tire shop in Memphis, a Michelin dealer, which did my tires used a floor jack. Concerning how do you know if your tires are being recalled, I received a letter from Michelin so I checked my tires against the info in the recall notice. But I am sure you can call Michelin. I would try to get as much info from your tires as possible before you called--like size, DOT markings to include date and place of manufacture (all included in the DOT marking)-- and I would do this for each tire. All of my tires were the same. Some DOT info on my Lexington tires was on the inside wall of the duallys so I did not know if all would be recalled until the dealer removed them. When I called the number on the recall letter, I got some bum info from Michelin where I should take my motorhome. I called the recommended places first and they told me they couldn't do big rigs. That's when I googled Michelin dealers close to where I live. Good luck. I got 6 new tires, mounted, balanced and installed for no money out of pocket and peace of mind.

I also had a difficult time finding a dealer in my area who would do it. Not sure if there are some local codes or some safety issue but they all said (included 3 Ford dealers within 20 miles) if they can't fit the RV inside they can't do it. They all said they could do it of I removed the tires myself and brought them in. Finally found a local mom and pop shop who would do it. Used my Big Foot jacks to lift it up.
