A version of a specific size of Michelin LTX M/S tire is being recalled by Michelin, the company announced in a press release on Monday, December 16, 2013. About 1.2 million tires sold in the United States are affected with this recall, reports said.
According to the press release, the tires being recalled are typically found on such vehicles as commercial light trucks, full-sized heavy duty vans, small RVs and some large pickup trucks.
The recall is being issued because a small number of the tires being recalled experienced tread loss and/or rapid air loss. However, no deaths or injuries have been reported in connection with the recalled tires.
