Michelin Tire Recall (Lexie Size)

I saw where someone elsewhere in out forum mentioned a Michelin Tire Recall. Well mine just happened to be in the middle of the series of years affected. I am all in on 6 brand new tires for free! This info may help you as well...


GREENVILLE, S.C., DEC. 13, 2013

Safety Recalls for Michelin LTX M/S light truck tires | Michelin US

Michelin is recalling one version of a specific size of the Michelin LTX M/S tire. These tires are typically found on such vehicles as commercial light trucks, full-sized heavy duty vans, small RVs and some large pickup trucks.

The tires were produced between January 2010 and June 2012.
The tire version and size are:
Michelin LTX M/S LT 225/75R16 115/112R LRE
The tires were fitted as original equipment on some new vehicles and were also sold as new replacement tires.
Michelin is issuing the recall because a small number of the tires being recalled experienced tread loss and/or rapid air loss.
Michelin recommends removal of these tires as soon as possible. Owners of the affected tires should visit an authorized Michelin retail location as soon as possible to have the tires replaced at no charge.

Check your spare tire. Ours was also a Michelin and it was also replaced under the recall. It was a different date from the six that were on the ground. Forest River supplies the spare so in many cases it's a different brand.
