Michelin is recalling X Works XZY tires in size 315/80R22.5 156/150K, manufactured from January 1, 2011, to July 31, 2015.

The recall affects just 247 tires which lack the required Department of Transportation symbol and load range letter designation. That fault means the tires fail to conform to the requirements of U.S Code 30112 and Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 119, “New Pneumatic Tires for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of more than 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) and Motorcycles.”

Michelin is notifying owners of these tires and will either correct the tires by permanently applying the required markings or replace the tires with a similar product, free of charge.

The recall began on February 13.

Owners may contact Michelin at 1-888-847-8475.
