Michelin Recalls 100,000 Tires After Holes Discovered

DETROIT (WWJ) – Michelin is voluntarily recalling 100,000 tires after a retailer discovered that some of them had holes in them.

A hotline message tells consumers which tires are affected: “If you have the Michelin’s LTX M/S 2, X Radial LT2 or the Michelin Latitude Tour your tires could be impacted by this recall,” says the hotline.

Those tires, in various sizes, are typically used on light trucks and SUVs.

The puncture, in the sidewall, was caused by machines used to handle the finished tires.

There have been no reports of damage, death or injury. Customers who may have purchased the tires will be notified by mail starting next week.
