Recall Alert: Michelin LTX M/S Tires


Tires Affected: About 1.2 million Michelin LTX M/X tires, size LT225/75R16 115/112R LRE manufactured between Jan. 10, 2010, and June 23, 2012. The tires were supplied for use as original equipment on certain Ford vehicles and as replacement equipment on various-brand commercial light trucks, full-size heavy-duty vans, small recreational vehicles and some large pickup trucks.

The Problem: The tire tread could separate, leading to rapid air loss, which may result in loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Michelin will begin notifying owners on Jan. 6, and Michelin dealers will replace the tires for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Michelin Consumer Care from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) Monday through Friday or 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturdays at 800-231-5893, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 or go to for more info.
