Michelin is recalling approximately 100,000 tires in order to retrieve an estimated 2,500 tires (about 2.5% of the recalled population).

Affected tires could have partial or full sidewall perforations that could cause them to experience loss of air pressure.

Michelin recommends removal of these tires as soon as possible. To reduce any inconvenience for consumers, Michelin will replace any tires from the list below on their vehicles even if they are not part of the 2,500 known affected tires. The removed tires will be replaced with a similar product free of charge.

 

If it is not one of these products; the tire is not part of the recall. Within these tire lines; only 18”, 19” and 20” (rim diameter) tires are affected by the recall.

If it is one of these products, check the DOT information to determine if the tire is affected by the recall as follows.

Michelin will return and replace these tires at no cost.
