looks like it takes effect on or around the 6th, called the base tire shop where I bought them, they haven't heard yet but are looking into it.

copied from .net fifthwheel section:

When I called my tire shop late Friday about needing 5 tires for the recall the manager asked that I call back Monday morning. I talked with him about 45 minutes ago and was told Michelin authorized the replacement of my BFG Commercial T/A's with Michelin tires at no charge.

He said he had them in stock and could replace my tires today if I brought the trailer in. I'm headed there after lunch and will report back on what tires I get...


There will probably be a shortage soon on that size, I'd get on um right away :vik:

800,000 tires is a lot of tires to replace :ftt:

EDIT: They swapped out the BFG Commercial T/A for Michelin LTX M/S2. The date codes for the new tires are between 1412 (April) and 2412 (June), which is more than 18 months 'fresher' than my old set.

Bottom line: Better, newer tires for free. What's not to like?
