Michelin North America, Inc., said it settled its lawsuit against Tire Recappers of Nashville “which focused on design patent infringements for the popular BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 and Michelin LTX M/S2 tires produced by Michelin in the United States.”

Michelin said the companies agreed not to disclose terms of the settlement.

“Michelin monitors the marketplace for infringements of our intellectual property at every performance level and price point,” said Scott Clark, chief operating officer for Michelin North America and head of the company’s passenger tire unit.
