Michelin Tire Recall

We have some of the recalled tires. I read here that they are on back order so I called my local dealer and they are saying 90-120 days, not taking names because the list would be too long. That puts the question of how big is the risk of driving on the existing tires? Does anyone have any feedback on what the chances of a catastrophic failure are?

well i called Michelin because of the long lead time - the CSR offered other replacment tires - and even offered to pay for substitute brands. Don't know if you could get the same offer or not. i waited 5 weeks to get replacments. As for the risk of driving on the "recalls", the CSR seemed very anxious to get me to commit to a sollution QUICKLY.

Just my $.02

The recall issue is tread separation so if they fail it will be either a problem or a disaster depending on where and how fast you are going. I urge you to replace them soon. Keep calling around, you really want the new Ltx M/S2's which are a superior tire. Don't let them talk you into a lesser tire. Try the high volume dealers like Discount, Big O or tire Rack on line.

I got mine replaced with a single phone call about two months ago. Good luck!

This is the first I heard anything about a recall. Can you provide info on which Michelin tires are being recalled and what sizes?

From the above poster's signatures, it appears these tires, Michelin LTX M/S LT 225/75R16 115/112R LRE, were used by Ford on both Class A and Class C RV chassis. Does that sound right? 16" tires ???
