Michelin Tire Recall

Just passing some information along that may be beneficial. I just received a notice that Michelin is recalling the following tires:

Tire Name Tire Description DOT Sequence DOT Production Periods
LTX M/S2 LTX M/S2 P275/55R20 111T RBL B99Y 56EX 3812 to 2113
LTX M/S2 LTX M/S2 P265/65R18 112T B9XP 001X 0513 to 2113
LTX M/S2 LTX M/S2 P265/60R18 109T ORWL B95E 788X 1513 to 2113

I just had six new Michelins put on my Class C replacing tires that were 3 year old tires. Refer to the following site for more information: Voluntary Safety Recall : MICHELIN LTX M/S2, MICHELIN X Radial LT2, MICHELIN Latitude Tour | Michelin Tires

Just replaced mine , I am based in UK so hoping to get something back from Michelin. I heard of recall just before 3k mile round trip to Spain so would not take risk even though tires are 3 years old with 18k on clock.

Talking

I bought my Leprechaun two weeks ago and promptly hit a curb making a turn and cut through the sidewall of the right rear outer tire and got to appreciate the road side assistance plan I had purchased the day before. I learned about the recall while calling around to get a replacement for the ruined tire. Surfing for info on the recall I found several discussions on different forums saying they had increased "sway" issues with the LTX MS2 replacements. I called Michelin and they have a list of acceptable tires they will allow you to select in place of the MS2's if you are concerned. I opted for the XPS RIB instead. The RIB is used primarily on delivery vehicles like UP, FED EX, etc. it has a stiffer sidewall and the same mileage as the MS. The RIB costs $100 more per tire and they are absorbing the increase. For the cherry on top they will even replace my blown spare as well. My dealer had to order them and they are supposed to come in this week. I can't say to much about the service I received talking to them. 7 brand new Michelins at zero cost to me. Now if I can just manage to avoid running over those curbs....

Had the 4 rears replaced under the recall. Haven't noticed any difference between the old and new.

we are getting our 3 year old tires replaced tomorrow. We never received a letter re: recall , told hubby we need to get them checked; sure enough they were the ones. 6 new tires and we had around 5000 miles on the other ones.

Free tires are good. Bought or 2006 C in February. Tires were from 2010 and under the recall. Got a new set at no cost a couple months ago. Don't notice any difference in handling but the new MS/2s are quieter.
