Cooper Recalls Some Zeon LTZ Tires

Jan. 7, 2016

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is recalling certain Zeon LTZ tires size 275/55R20 XL Extra Load tubeless tires manufactured Sept. 1, 2015, to Sept. 14, 2015.

The company says the affected tires may experience tread cracking or tread lug chunking during use. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles."

Tread cracking or tread lug chunking may cause a loss of tire pressure, increasing the risk of a crash.

Cooper will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires, free of charge. The potential number of tires affected is 153.

The recall is expected to begin in January 2016.

Owners may contact Cooper customer service at 1-800-854-6288. Cooper's number for this recall is 161.
