Unhappy Michelin Tire Recall

Here's a link to a NHTSA Recall notice for tires many of us with a JGC have on our vehicle.

I checked the tires on my Jeep Overland with ORA and they are Latitude Tour M+S and don't appear to be listed in the recall. Most in the recall are Latitude LTX M/S2 in the pertinent size.

BTW...what is the difference between M+S and M/S2?

Re: Michelin Tire Recall

M&S (mud & snow) is a generic tire designation, I believe. M/S2 is a Michelin brand name. The Latitude and LTX are two completely different Michelin tires.

Re: Michelin Tire Recall

I wish it was the Latitudes being recalled. Maybe they will get around to them.

The Michelin M+S was the older model from back in the late 90s.
The M+S/2 is just a slightly updated design. Don't recall when it came out a few years back. I don't see any huge differences in tread pattern like there was on the AT and the AT2.

One big reason I posted the recall was that a number of us have, or plan to, change the ORA package Latitudes for the LTX M/S2 tires. I already have. Luckily my tires were from an earlier lot and aren't involved in the recall...yet.

Re: Michelin Tire Recall

Unless I'm wrong, the very first sentence mentions the Latitude. Don't know if the size mentioned is ours or not, but I prnted it out and will be checking m tires after work.

Re: Michelin Tire Recall

The Latitude we are getting in Aus, and I suspect it is what you are getting in the US, is:

MICHELIN LATITUDE TOUR / P265/60R18

So not one listed.
