GREENVILLE, S.C. – Michelin North America has announced a voluntary safety recall of approximately 100,000 tires in order to retrieve an estimated 2,500 tires – about 2.5 percent of the recalled population – that could have partial or full sidewall perforations that could cause them to experience loss of air pressure.
