Reasons the product is recalled

A manufacturing change resulted in micro air bubbles forming in and between certain components in the shoulder of the tyre. This may lead to rapid pressure loss or reduced performance in the tyre.

The hazards to consumers

If there is rapid pressure loss or the tyre degrades this may lead to tyre failure, resulting in a loss of vehicle control. This may increase the risk of an accident or injury to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What consumers should do

Owners should return the affected tyre to the place of purchase or a Michelin authorised dealer for an inspection and replacement of the tyre, free of charge.

For further information, contact Michelin Customer Service by phone on 1300 727 878 (Monday to Friday, 8am - 5pm AEST).
