Michelin North America is recalling 32 CrossClimate+ tires in size 225/60R16 103V XL with DOT date code 4618.

The tires are not marked with the required UTQG treadwear, traction or temperature gradings.

In addition, on the designated outboard sidewall and on the inboard sidewall, the “DOT” certification symbol, which precedes the Tire Identification Number (TIN) has not been molded into the sidewall.

Without the proper markings, the tires may not be used in the appropriate driving conditions, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Michelin will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin January 30, 2020.

Owners may contact Michelin customer service at (866) 324-2835.
