Over Half-a-Million Michelin Commercial Light Truck Tires Recalled

Over Half-a-Million Michelin Commercial Light Truck Tires Recalled

Certain Agilis CrossClimate C-Metric tires will be recalled due to irregular traction performance.

Michelin North America (Michelin) is recalling 542,110 Agilis CrossClimate C-Metric tires with DOT codes 0117 through 1423. Affected sizes include 225/75 R16C, 235/65 R16C, 205/75 R16C, 205/65 R15C, 185/60 R15C and 195/75 R16C.

The recall, initiated in accordance with NHTSA regulations, involved tires in C-Metric sizes that do not meet the traction requirements for snow tires. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles,” and Canadian Technical Standards Document (TSD) 139, NHTSA said.

Michelin says authorized dealers will provide replacements at no cost to owners. An interim owner notification letter will be sent on June 12 informing owners of the safety risk associated with their current tires. Once the remedy becomes available, a second notice will be issued to the owners.
