    Michelin has announced a recall of 1.2 million Michelin LTX M/S tires typically found on commercial light trucks, full-sized heavy duty vans, small RVs and some large pickup trucks.

    The tire version and size were listed as Michelin LTX M/S LT 225/75R16 115/112R LRE.

    The tires were produced between January 2010 and June 2012, the company said, and were fitted as original equipment on some new vehicles and sold as new replacement tires.

    The recall was issued after some tires experienced tread loss or rapid air loss, the company said.

    Michelin said it recommends removal of the tires as soon as possible and directs owners to visit an authorized Michelin retail location to have the tires replaced at no charge.
