Michelin Tire Recall

Just found this on Google news this morning:

"WASHINGTON -- Michelin North America is recalling 1.2 million tires in the United States — including some used as original equipment on full-size Ford vans — because the tread might come apart, according to a report from the tiremaker posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

Michelin said the LTX M/S tires in a 225/75/16 size were designed for “commercial light trucks, full-sized heavy duty vans, small recreational vehicles and some large pickup trucks.”

Ford used the tires as original equipment on the 2010 through 2013 models of its E-Series vans, Ford spokeswoman Kelli Felker wrote in an email.

Michelin said there had been no reports of injuries."

Michelin will notify owners and Michelin dealers will replace the tires free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 6, 2014. Owners may call Michelin Consumer Care Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST, or Saturday and Sunday from 8:30am to 4:30pm EST at the following numbers: USA: 1-800-231-5893 (language options: English and Spanish)"

Just got mine replaced, dropped off at Discount Tire came back a couple of hours later to pick it up and they told me that I owed them $96 for labor, they claimed that the recall did not cover labor, I called the 800 number set up for the recall and had the problem resolved in less than 5 min., seems that someone at Discount had sent out information on the recall that had incorrectly stated that labor was not included. Michelin did a great job fixing the problem and i got two years free out of my tires.
