Michelin Tire Recall

Don't know if this effects anyone, but it's worth checking

4 of my 6 tires are on the recall. Both rear duals are on the recalls. The fronts are ok,

I was afraid it was the tires that are on Greyhawks...I am going to check mine tomorrow. Keep us updated on how replacement goes.

So I called Michelin to confirm that the 4 rears were under recall. Was concerned that the new tires may not match the MS's on the front. They said it should not be a factor but if it was then let them know. You can replace with MS2's or if the install place is out then a similar make and brand. They looked for Michelin dealers in my current area and recommended NTB. The recall covers all related costs, balancing, installation.

I called NTB and they had 4 of the MS2's in stock. I went there yesterday and they were very nice. They swapped out the tires and installed and balanced the new ones. Also used torque wrenches to get the correct setting on each lug. They initially said I would have to pay for balance but I repeated what Michelin told me and he confirmed with Michelin and it was all free.

I did not notice any difference in handling on the way back to the park. Admittedly is was a short trip but I did get up to my normal speed with is 55mph.

Very happy with the situation so far.

That's good news, reitrof. Did you have to find a dealer that was capable of jacking your Greyhawk, or can any Michelin dealer do it?

I checked mine and all 6 are on the recall. The spare is not. I contacted Stouhal Tire south of Houston and they are ordering tires for me. He also said all will be covered by Michelin, even if I wanted to replace with a different manufacturer. Stouhal's facility can handle any sized vehicle and have other Texas locations.

Initially NTB wasn't sure if they could but they tried one of their floor jacks and were able to lift each dually individually. They were very careful. They had done class C's before but not that big.

Yes, Michelin told me the same thing. I wanted to stay with Michelins as the fronts are still the MS's. NTB was very close to Jamaica Beach RV park.

Good luck with getting all 6 changed. Are you planning to get Michelins again??

I have to check mine this weekend. How did you check the inner tires on the duals?
