WASHINGTON (July 20, 2013)--Michelin says it’s voluntarily recalling 100,000 tires after a retailer discovered that some had holes and quickly deflated.
The recall involves certain sizes of Michelin's LTX M/S 2, X Radial LT2 and Latitude Tour tires, which are typically used on light trucks and SUVs.
The puncture, in the sidewall, was caused by machines used to handle the finished tires at Michelin's Lexington, S.C. plant.
Michelin said about 2,500 of the recalled tires may have the defect.
There have been no reports of damage, death or injury.
Customers who purchased the tires will be notified by mail beginning next week and those who have already replaced the tires may be reimbursed.
