Order Reprints

July 15, 2013—Michelin North America announced Friday a voluntary safety recall of approximately 100,000 tires that could have partial or full sidewall perforations that could cause them to experience loss of air pressure.

The company expects roughly 2.5 percent of the tires to be affected.

No deaths, injuries or accidents have been reported in connection with these recalled tires, and Michelin said it has identified and fixed the issue.

The recall involves certain sizes of the Michelin LTX M/S2, Michelin X Radial LT2 and Michelin Latitude Tour tires sold primarily in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The tires are typically found on light trucks and SUVs.

Owners of the affected tires should visit an authorized Michelin retail location as soon as possible to have the tires replaced at no charge.
