Our tires have been on backorder since March 11! Still waiting. We call the Ford dealer every week. Last week we were told we were #2 in line and they had 16 people behind us.

Haven't called this week. But will later today. We have been told the tires are safe to drive on. The issue comes when the tires become hot. They will separate. Sure don't want to risk highway driving at this point!

Ours were within the recall dates, we just had 6 new Michelin tires installed yesterday.

Find a Michelin tire dealer and have them get your new tires, that's what we did and they had them a week after I called.

We went to a Michelin dealer, all 6 needed replacing. Had to order them and it took about 3+ weeks but they came in yesterday and will be mounted on Tuesday. Added bonus, I am going to have the valve stems replaced with "Dually Valves" (which I had purchased before I found out about the recall) at the same time, saving me quite a few bucks

All 6 tires on my Greyhawk replaced with Michelins. Very happy to have the nearly 4 years newer tires put on, although the replaced tires showed little wear. It was a little tricky finding a Michelin dealer that could handle the weight of the rig. None of the local tire stores could lift a vehicle the weight of mine.

Mine are on order from the Ford dealer and they are speculating on a 1 month order time. I have had no problems with them, including a 9,500 mile trip to Alaska 2 summers ago - but I'm glad to get a new set of Michelins after 25,000 miles on the "defective" ones.

Hi,

Does anyone know if this affects the Redhawk, is it just the Grayhawk?

We pickup our new 2015 Redhawk last Saturday, and are already nervous about traveling without a spare!

Thanks!

Just get the codes from the tire recall page and check your tires - chances are if one tire is in the recall, all six are.

And you should be nervous about traveling without a spare - read this thread from awhile ago on that topic:

Good luck!
