Michelin Responds to Ford News Conference

    GREENVILLE, S.C., May 22 Michelin has been contacted by
Ford Motor Company to assist in the replacement of some 13 million tires for
their mutual consumers.  "The focus here is to make sure this process of
replacing tires is as convenient as possible for the consumer and to make sure
replacement tires are available as quickly as possible," said Jim Micali,
President and Chairman of Michelin North America, Inc.  Michelin says it is
prepared to do that with its entire portfolio of brands.  During the recall
last fall, Michelin made available some 2 million tires to consumers, through
Ford dealers and its own dealer network.
