According to a post by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on its official website on Saturday, April 21, 2012, the Michelin tire recall include models such as sizes XZU3 LRJ, Size 305/85R22.5 and XZU2 LRJ, Size 12R22.5.

As noted in the report, these two models were produced between October 23, 2005 and September 3, 2011; while the third model XM505 LRJ, SIZE 305/85R22.5 were produced between April 18, 2010, and May 8, 2010, and January 23, 2011, and February 12, 2011.

Apparently, the said tires, which were manufactured in their plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, may experience a loss of integrity that could lead to rapid air loss, with the company not mentioning any report of related incidents.

Nevertheless, Michelin noted that they will later inform the affected customers on how the tires will be replacement, with the recall being expected to start on April 30, 2012.
