Summary Michelin North America, Inc. (Michelin) is recalling certain CrossClimate+ tires in size 225/60R17 103V XL tires with DOT date code 4618.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles."
