Michelin commercial tyre recall in US
ERJ staff report (LMH)
Washington, DC -- Michelin is recalling certain BF Goodrich Commercial T/A A/S LRE and Uniroyal Laredo HD/H LRE tyres, sizes LT235/85R16 120 Q and LT245/75R16 120 Q.
These tyres may develop a separation at the tread/belt edge, according to a message from NHTSA (US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) Office of Defects.
Tread/belt separation of the tyre while the vehicle is in use can result in rapid air loss which may increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Michelin will notify owners and replace the affected tyres free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, 6 Aug 2012.
