They should be recalled when you think they can recall Peanuts because it doesn't say May contain nuts on the label.

Just had a recall at work because label saying contains 'Soya' was not in bold font

I think I should have gone for 235/45R17 instead of 225/45R17, Michelin are very narrow and very big grooves which help to avoid aquaplaning but it's rather small contact area, still achieves impressive grip. And I could have used a bit higher sidewall for more ground clearance, keep hitting things with underside.
