Cooper Is Recalling 577 Roadmaster RM234 Tires
Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is recalling one size of Roadmaster RM234 tires manufactured from Aug. 6, 2015, to Sept. 5, 2015, because the tires may have a pin-sized hole in the sidewall.
The affected tire size is 295/75R22.5. Cooper says the recall potentially includes 577 tires. The tire identification number is 4Y 37 LWA 3115 through 3515.
Cooper says it determined that a mechanical problem on the tire removal unit at curing press 055L caused a pinhole in the sidewall of the affected tires. A loss of tire air pressure can cause sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
The tire maker will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires including the mounting and balancing, free of charge. Cooper has not yet provided a notification schedule to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA.)
Owners may contact Cooper customer service at 1-800-854-6288. Cooper’s number for this recall is 4Y.
Owners also may contact the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) or go to www.safercar.gov.
