Re: Michelin LTX M/S LT 225/75R16 115/112R LRE
Visited my van a couple of days ago and checked my tires: Michelin LTX M/S LT225/SR16e 115/115r; B3JH AKEX 4310, 5010 and 3810 (didn't dive into the snow drift to get the 4th tire number). Emailed Michelin to ask if these were subject to recall. Response: Yes, it appears so. Please present your tires to a participating Michelin dealer who will assist with the removal of the affected tires. The tires will be replaced with a similar product at no cost to (me). They deeply apologize for the inconvenience. However "it's our responsibility to put safety first…". Their response was very quick.
Stopped by local tire outlet this afternoon. They will follow up directly to confirm with Michelin and call to let me know when they've got the OK to proceed and replacement tires available. They indicated it might take a while. Said I hope no longer than a couple of weeks since we head south in February.
I purchased the tires in Feb 2011, so I've had 3 years of excellent performance from them, but since hearing of the recall, I'll be happy to have them replaced before hitting the highway again.
Thanks so much for flagging the problem on this forum. I'd never have known otherwise.
