It has come to SimpleTire's attention that Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. (Cooper Tire) has issued a recall on the following tires:
The following statement was released on December 31, 2019:
Cooper Tire & Rubber Company has determined the affected tires as manufactured may have an incorrect sidewall component that may develop an in-service slow loss of air pressure, in-service audible noise, unsatisfactory ride condition, belt separation, or distortion in the tread area that if undetected may ultimately result in a tire failure leading to the loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of a crash. Driving at high speeds may cause this condition to occur and should be avoided until the tires have been inspected and replaced, if they fall within the identification numbers shown above.
Cooper Tire & Rubber Company is recalling all of the tires with the identification number(s) above. SimpleTire urges anyone who has purchased these tires to check your inventory for these specific identification numbers. The DOT Code is easily identified with a small oval circling four numbers.
If the tires you purchased are affected, owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
