I had thought it odd the other day when I posted the recall in the post above, that it was the exact same tire and dates from the recall last year, as specified in post #13 of this thread.

Today, I found out why the same tires are being recalled again. This one is going to be interesting to watch as I'm sure fines and lawsuits may ensue.

Liberty Tire is blamed for extending Kumho recall

Kumho Tire U.S.A. Inc. is recalling 11,922 Kumho Solus KH25 passenger car tires, size 225/45R17, produced from Aug. 21, 2011, through June 23, 2012.


All the tires associated with this recall relate to Kumho's initial recall for these tires covered by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recall 12T-020.


"The affected tires were rendered unusable by being punctured with three drill holes through the tread surface and sent to Liberty Tire Recycling LLC for disposal," according to NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation. Instead, Liberty sold these tires as "used tires" to various tire wholesaler/distributors in Texas, New York, North Carolina and Puerto Rico.
The tires resold by Liberty have three drill hole punctures through the tread surface that if repaired, may not adhere to specific Rubber Manufacturers Association standards for tire repairs, "which could result in rapid air loss while the vehicle is in use, and result in a tire failure that could cause a crash."


Kumho will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected tires in accordance with the dealer notification letter. The safety recall began on May 6, 2013. Owners may contact Kumho at (909) 428-3358.

Some of those sizes are commonly found on newer model trucks and SUVs.

Thanks for posting this. Funny story is, I was on the phone with a friend of mine who sells Michelin tires about 40 miles south of here. I was waiting for him to walk into his warehouse to see if had some other tires I needed and was playing on Forest River forums waiting for him to come back...when I saw your post. I told my friend about it, and they haven't heard a word yet from Michelin on it.

I gave him the link, and he was less than enthused about seeing this on a Friday evening.

Here is the official NHTSA announcement on the same tires that Airdale posted previously. These are some common tire sizes, and our members may have them on their vehicles, so please take a look:

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 13T006
Synopsis:
Michelin Tire is recalling certain:

Latitude Tour P255/70 R18 (DOT TIN B9YU99CX and DOT date range 1313 through 2113)

and P255/60 R19 108 S (DOT TIN B9R1W3WX and DOT date range 1913 through 2113),
==================================
X Radial LT2 P265/65 R18 112 T (DOT TIN B9KA003X and DOT date range 0513 through 2113)

and P275/55 R20 111 T (DOT TIN B99Y001X and DOT date range 0513 through 2113),
================================
LTX M/S2 RBL P275/55 R20 111 T (DOT TIN B99Y56EX and DOT date range 3812 through 2113),

LTX M/S2 ORWL P265/60 R18 109 T (DOT TIN B95E788X and DOT date range 1513 through 2113),

LTX M/S2 tires P265/65 R18 112 T (DOT TIN B9XP001X and DOT date range 0513 through 2113).

Due to a perforation in the sidewall, the tires may lose pressure while driving. A loss of tire air pressure may lead to sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash. Michelin will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace any affected tires free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of July 2013. Owners may contact Michelin Consumer Care at 1-855-851-4951. For more information for this particular recall, please go to 13T006.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:
