According to an official statement, “this decision results from the analysis of customer returns in Europe, which has revealed an anomaly that in certain cases may lead to a rapid loss of air pressure in the tyre. This situation constitutes a potential safety risk.” The manufacturer says it will therefore exchange all of the tyres in question.
As a precautionary measure, Michelin has decided to exchange all the subject tyres. U.K. readers wishing to query Michelin further can phone the following number: 0800 056 7200. Callers in the Republic of Ireland should dial 01 459 5955.
