The tires also can be identified by the markings DOT 6UCW 980T or DOT
6UCW 979T. This recall involves these specific tires only and has no
impact on any other Michelin tires.

The tires have a possible defect in the tread because of a
manufacturing irregularity, but there haven't been any cases of
pressure loss or accidents.
