Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. (Cooper) is recalling certain Discover M+S Sport tires, sizes 235/75R15, 255/65R16, 215/70R16, 225/70R16, 235/70R16, 245/70R16, 265/70R16, 255/60R17, 225/65R17, 235/65R17, 265/65R17, 255/55R18, 235/60R18 and 255/50R19. These tires may be marked with the Alpine Symbol, but do not meet the traction requirements for snow tires.
As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 139, “New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles.” The affected tires may not provide the expected traction or performance in snow conditions, increasing the risk of a crash.
Cooper will notify owners, and dealers will replace all the affected tires with tires from a different brand line, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 24, 2017. Owners may contact Cooper customer service at 1-800-854-6288. Cooper’s number for this recall is 166.
