Michelin tire recall: 597 tires affected in the United States

Michelin Pilot Alpine Tire RecallIf you have purchased Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2 ZP winter tires in size 225/50 R17 94H in the United States, you may be affected by the latest recall from French tire manufacturer Michelin. Michelin is recalling 597 of their Pilot Alpin winter tires after discovering they were non-compliant with the NHTSA requirement for a marking which indicates the tire has been certified to its motor vehicle safety standard.

However, the tire meets all of its performance requirements and does not pose any safety hazards on the road. The tires are simply missing the letters “DOT” from the sidewall which is required by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.

If you believe that you might be affected by the tire recall, return the tires to your local dealer for a free inspection and potential replacement. Or, call Michelin Consumer Care at 1-800-847-3435. If you buy tires online, contact your online dealer for return and replacement instructions.
