  1. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6-4-2019 GM has developed a partnership with Michelin to develop airless tire and wheel technology. GM plans to begin testing the Michelin “Unique Puncture-proof Tire System,” dubbed Uptis, on a fleet of Chevy Bolts this year. Furthermore, GM says that it will be ready to begin volume sales by 2024. “General Motors is excited about the possibilities that Uptis presents, and we are thrilled to collaborate with Michelin on this breakthrough technology,” said Steve Kiefer, senior vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, General Motors. “Uptis is an ideal fit for propelling the automotive industry into the future and a great example of how our customers benefit when we collaborate and innovate with our supplier partners.” This technology has been around for a decade and is used on some commercial construction vehicles, like Bobcats. GM sees the following benefits to the technology: -Reduces the number of punctured or damaged tires that are scrapped before reaching the end of their life cycle. -Reduces the use of raw materials, energy for production and emissions linked to the manufacture of spare tires and replacement tires that are no longer required. -Lasts longer by eliminating irregular wear and tear caused by over- or under-inflation. -Reduces dangers related to flats and blowouts. Are we crazy, or dies this technology look perfect for off-roading?
  2. The affected models include BFGoodrich's line of Commercial T/A All-Season, Commercial T/A All-Season 2, and Rugged Terrain T/A tires. The company is letting consumers know that the bead area of the tire may experience a rapid failure, resulting in complete loss of tire pressure. As you could imagine, losing all of your tire's air-pressure without warning usually results in a crash. Consumers who are using these recalled tires are asked to return to the shop where they were installed to receive absolutely free replacements.

  3. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 8/31/2015 Michelin North America, producer of the BFGoodrich brand has announced a recall of approximately 104,000 light duty pickup tires.
