Cooper remembers 430K truck and SUV tires due to sidewall bulging

DETROIT – Cooper Tire is recalling more than 430,000 truck and SUV tires in the US because they can develop sidewall bulges that can lead to tire damage.

The recall affects certain Discoverer, Evolution, Courser, Deegan, Adventurer, Hercules, Back Country, Multi-Mile, Wild Country and Big O tires in various sizes.

The company says in documents released by U.S. security officials Friday that the bulges could cause sidewall separation. This can cause the tires to lose air easily and increase the risk of an accident.

Cooper, based in Findlay, Ohio, said there have been no deaths or injury claims or property damage as a result of the problem.

The owners will be notified and the dealers will replace the tires. The recall is expected to begin on March 25th.

The tires were manufactured between February 1st, 2018 and December 1st, 2019. Owners can contact the company at (800) 854-6288.
