What's the Problem?
This recall affects Michelin CrossClimate+ tires in size 225/60R17 103V XL with DOT date code 4618, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The recalled Michelin tires are not marked with the required UTQG treadwear, traction or
temperature gradings, and do not have the DOT certification symbol molded into the sidewall.
As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles," NHTSA said. Without the proper markings, the tires may not be used in the appropriate driving conditions, and may increase the risk of a crash.
Michelin is notifying owners, and dealerships will replace the tires free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on Jan. 30, 2020.
