Cooper Tires Recall Update
[Feb. 15, 2006] Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. announced a Cooper Tire recall of about 288,000 replacement tires used on passenger cars and light trucks because of concerns about slow leaks and cracking in the tires. The Findlay, Ohio-based tire maker said there have been no reported crashes or injuries linked to this Cooper tire recall. The recall represents a small portion of the 40 million tires it produces each year, the company said. “We have a very vigorous inspection for tires, and we never take any chances,” said Pat Brown, a Cooper Tire spokeswoman. The company will replace the recalled Cooper tires for free. Owners of these recalled Cooper tire are being warned to avoid driving at highway speeds until the tires have been inspected and replaced. At highway speeds the Cooper tires could develop tread separation or detreading of the outside tire causing the tire to deflate at highway speeds and possibly leading to a rollover accident or collision. This is not the first Cooper tire recall to affect the company.
