GREENVILLE, S.C. (Dec. 23, 2004) — Michelin Americas Truck Tires voluntarily is recalling as many as 4,000 commercial truck tires made in Northern Ireland because of quality concerns.
The company said it notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration it will recall the Michelin XDE M/S size 10R22.5 Load Range F and Load Range G tires after its quality control system found a condition in a tire that could cause rapid air loss. Michelin said it has no reports of accidents involving the tire.
The recall involves commercial truck tires only and has no impact on any other Michelin tires, the firm said.
The recalled tires were made at the firm's Ballymena, North Ireleand, plant between May and October. Returned tires will be replaced.
