Surely no one is running this class "P" on their Montana or TV!

Thanks for posting the warning CORattler!

To make things a little easier... here's the list of affected tires and DOT codes.

Latitude Tour P255/70 R18 (DOT TIN B9YU99CX and DOT date range 1313 through 2113)
Latitude Tour P255/60 R19 108 S (DOT TIN B9R1W3WX and DOT date range 1913 through 2113)

X Radial LT2 P265/65 R18 112 T (DOT TIN B9KA003X and DOT date range 0513 through 2113)
X Radial LT2 P275/55 R20 111 T (DOT TIN B99Y001X and DOT date range 0513 through 2113)

LTX M/S2 RBL P275/55 R20 111 T (DOT TIN B99Y56EX and DOT date range 3812 through 2113)
LTX M/S2 ORWL P265/60 R18 109 T (DOT TIN B95E788X and DOT date range 1513 through 2113)
LTX M/S2 tires P265/65 R18 112 T (DOT TIN B9XP001X and DOT date range 0513 through 2113)

Like WeBeFulltime mentions, the tire description all refer to "P" (Passenger tires) and shouldn't affect our trucks or trailers. The description of the problem is, "Due to a perforation in the sidewall, the tires may lose pressure while driving". I did not know the LTX M/S2 came in a Passenger designation, but you might wanna go and check your passenger vehicles.

A few weeks back I had mentioned one of my truck's Michelin tires failed such that it maintained air, but was distorted quite strangely but not perforated and while it caused difficult handling I was able to pull off to the side on the Interstate and get the tire changed out. It was an LTX M/S2 LT275/70R-18 122/125S and not on this list and the DOT code was way beyond the DOT date range.
