The tires are commonly used for pickup trucks, heavy-duty vans, small RVs and commercial light trucks. The Greenville, South Carolina-based company says no deaths or injuries have been reported because of the Michelin tires recall.
The tires, known as Michelin LTX M/S tires, were manufactured between January 2010 and June 2012. They were sold as original equipment on some vehicles and as new replacement tires.
The company says that fewer than 200 of the tires have been returned by customers. Owners can have them replaced at Michelin stores for no charge.
