These tires may develop a separation at the tread/belt edge. Tread/belt separation of the tire while the vehicle is in use can result in rapid air loss which may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

Owners may contact Michelin Consumer Care at 1-800-637-5527. For more information for this particular recall, please go to 12T019.

EDIT: These are some pretty common tires and will most likely affect some of our members here as they were produced from the 13th week of 2010..... till the 29th week of 2012.

Here is a link from Michelin that shows the DOT codes and dates for the tires affected:

So why does Trail Express not get hit with a massive recall?
I was looking at this trailer in Maine last weekend. a 2011 model that my 1/2 ton could haul without effort.

When i checked the tires guess what.....
U guessed it.
They were cracked. and not in a hidden inside location.

What would surely start out as an enjoyable vacation for someone will most undoubtedly end up as the perfect storm.

Tire Recalls

I wouldn't wait on contact from one of the tire companies if you have one that is involved.

I had tires from the BFG recall. Neither of the 2 dealers I bought the tires from had registered them with BFG so they did not know I had bought them

The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, October 20, 2012. Owners may contact Yokohama at 1-800-423-4544. For more information for this particular recall, please go to 12T025.
