Cooper is recalling certain Discoverer H/T tires


NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12T008
Cooper Tire & Rubber Company (Cooper) is recalling certain Discoverer H/T tires, size LT245/75R16, manufactured from February 12, 2012, through March 10, 2012. Some of the subject tires may have been produced with an incorrect load range, maximum permissible inflation pressure, and maximum load molded onto the intended inner sidewall. Therefore, the affected tires fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires For Light Vehicles." Inaccurate tire labeling may lead to the tire being over-loaded and/or under-inflated, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. Cooper will notify owners, and dealers will replace the noncompliant tires free of charge. Free mounting and balancing will also be included, as applicable. The recall is expected to begin on April 11, 2012. Owners may contact Cooper Tire & Rubber Company’s Consumer Relations Department at 1-800-854-6288. Cooper’s recall number is 155.
