Michelin North America Inc. is recalling 1.2 million Michelin LTX M/S tires (size LT225/75R16 115/112R LRE) because of potential tread separation.

The tires have been used as original equipment on certain Ford vehicles. They have also been used as replacement tires on various commercial light trucks, full-size heavy-duty vans, small RVs and some large pickup trucks. The recall covers tires manufactured from Jan. 10, 2010, through June 23, 2012.

Tread separation can lead to rapid air loss, which can result in a loss of vehicle control.

Michelin dealers will replace the tires free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on Jan. 6.

Owners of the tires can reach Michelin at 1-800-231-5893.
