Michelin recalls 16" tire used in some RVs & pick-ups
« on: December 18, 2013, 03:38:00 PM »
Michelin North America is recalling 1.2 million tires in the United States, including some used as original equipment on full-size Ford vans that are the basis for some RVs.   The problem is the tread might come apart, according to a report from the Michelin posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.
 
 Michelin said the LTX M/S tires in a 225/75/16 size were designed for “commercial light trucks, full-sized heavy duty vans, small recreational vehicles and some large pickup trucks.”
 
 Ford spokeswoman Kelli Felker wrote in an email that Ford used the tires as original equipment on the 2010 through 2013 models of its E-Series vans.
