100,000 Tires Recalled By Michelin Due to Air Pressure Loss Risk

100,000 tires are being recalled by Michelin for a safety issue that could find the tires suffering from perforated sidewalls.  Although only 2,500 tires are thought to be affected by the potential defect, Michelin has gone ahead and issued this recall on Latitude Tour, LTX M/S2, and X Radial LT2 tires in order to fix those units which are affected.  No incidents have been reported yet in association with the defect, which if made manifest, can cause air pressure to emanate from the unit.  Persons whose vehicles carry these tires are being advised to drop in to a Michelin dealer to seek out free replacements.  To find out if their tires are affected, consumers are being asked to identify the tire’s date based off of the sidewall code and to compare it with a list of affected units.
