I doubt this will effect many private users of Michelin tires, but we received this flash from the DOT this afternoon and thought I would pass it on.
GREENVILLE, S.C. (April 21, 2012) — Michelin North America Inc. is voluntarily recalling 77,775 Michelin-brand medium radial truck tires in the U.S. and Canada because of a problem with the tires’ casings that could cause rapid air loss.
The tires being recalled are certain Michelin:
XZU3 LRJ, size 305/85R22.5, and
XZU2 LRJ, size 12R22.5, produced between Oct. 23, 2005, and Sept. 3, 2011; and
XM505 LRJ, size 305/85R22.5, produced between April 18 and May 8, 2010, and Jan. 23, 2011, and Feb. 12, 2011, at Michelin’s plant in Spartanburg, S.C.
