Michelin has recalled around 841,000 BFGoodrich and Uniroyal tires because the tread can separate, causing rapid air loss. No deaths or injuries have been reported from the tires, which were made as replacement tires for commercial light trucks and full-sized heavy duty vans from April 2010 until early this year, according to the company. Michelin North America Inc., based in Greenville, S.C., started the recall last month. Tires will be replaced at no charge. Websites and toll-free numbers were set up with more information.
It is well-known that tire separations create a safety hazard and are extremely dangerous. A Michelin spokesperson said the company’s internal testing shows the problems with the tires have apparently been corrected for those manufactured more recently. The tires being recalled were BFGoodrich commercial tires LT 235/85 and LT245/75 and Uniroyal Laredo tires LT 235/85 and LT245/75. Michelin said anyone looking for more information can call 800-637-5527.
