Cooper recalls touring tires made over 35 days
Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is recalling Cooper CS4 Touring (V-rated) tires, size 215/55R17, produced between Sept. 7 and Oct. 11, 2008.
According to Cooper and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Office of Defects Investigation, these tires may have been cured for an inadequate amount of time. "This condition can lead to tread separation, possibly resulting in loss of vehicle control and a crash." they say.
Cooper Tire will notify owners and replace, mount, and balance any defective tires free of charge. Dealers will examine suspect tires to see if they fall in the recall population.
The recall is expected to begin on or about Dec. 18, 2008. Owners may contact Cooper Tire Consumer Relations toll-free at (800) 854-6288.
