Regulator comments
The Recall Tyres have the following tyre identification numbers on the sidewall:
 
DOT B8EA followed by the number (week and year) 4017 (inclusive) to 3120 (inclusive)

What are the defects?

The tyres within this production range may not meet manufacturing specifications. As a result, a small separation may generate along the edge of the radial steel belts which may lead to a larger separation developing. As this separation generates over time, the tyre is safe to use until the end of its first life (original tread worn out) but should not be retreaded. If this separation occurs, it could cause rapid loss of air pressure and may lead to a loss of vehicle control.

What are the hazards?

A loss of vehicle control will increase the risk of an accident, causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Owners operators can contact their nearest authorised Michelin dealer to have the component inspected and rectified, free of charge.
