Cooper Tire Recalls Two Tires

Cooper Tire is recalling certain Evolution H/T 245/70R16 tires and certain Hercules Roadtour 455 Sport 225/50R17 tires.

Information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is recalling certain Evolution H/T 245/70R16 tires. The Tire Identification Number (TIN) states the incorrect manufacture date of the tire. The correct code is 2317, and the subject tires are incorrectly marked with 1723. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires For Light Vehicles” and number 574, “Tire Identification & Recordkeeping,” NHTSA said, adding that Cooper Tire will replace the tires, free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Oct. 1. Owners may contact Cooper Tire customer service at 1-800-854-6288. Cooper Tire’s number for this recall is 171.

Cooper Tire also is recalling certain Hercules Roadtour 455 Sport 225/50R17 tires with DOT code 0721. Due to a manufacturing issue, the tire may experience a belt separation, NHTSA said. These also will be replaced free of charge by Cooper Tire. Owner notification letters were mailed beginning Sept. 10.
