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?

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.

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.

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.

Yep...same here on the USA Overland with ORAII package. We dodged that recall!
