Issue

On certain vehicles, the factory-installed Michelin LTX LT225/75R16 tires may experience tread belt edge separation from the tire. This would result in ride vibration or irregular wear, and could lead to a loss of tread or rapid loss of air pressure. Tire failure could cause the driver to lose vehicle control, which may result in a crash. Also, during tire failure, rapid deterioration can produce debris. These issues could result in property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Retailers will replace affected tires.
