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.

  • This three-digit number represents the width of the tire in millimeters (mm), measured from sidewall to sidewall. Since this measure is affected by the width of the rim, the measurement is done when the tire is on its intended rim size.  <div><img src="/assets/mi/system/images/contextual-help/R2-width.png" /></div>
  • The aspect ratio is the relationship of a tire's sidewall height to its section width, expressed as a percentage. In this example, the tire sidewall height is approximately 55% of the tire width. The higher the number, the taller the sidewall; the lower the number, the lower the sidewall.<div><img src="/assets/mi/system/images/contextual-help/R2-aspect.png" /></div>
