Cooper Recalling 92,000 LT Tyres
(Akron/Tire Review) Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is recalling some 92,000 Dominator Sport A/T tyres due to concerns over possible tread separations. The tyres, in size LT265/75R16E, were sold only through Discount Tire and America’s Tire locations. The tyres being recalled were produced at Cooper’s Findlay, Ohio, plant between July 2002 and March 2005. The tyres carry DOT numbers UPW8XDJ2702 to UPW8XDJ1305.
Cooper claims it found no manufacturing or design flaws in the tyres. According to reports, NHTSA began investigating complaints on the tyres more than a year ago, but also found no technical issues with the tyres. Cooper has made no public statements about the recall. NHTSA posted a news release on its Web site about the voluntary recall earlier this month.
