If you or a loved one have equipped your vehicle with Cooper Cordovan Centron tires, you should know that they have a history of getting recalled due to factory defects.

DUE TO INCONSISTENCIES WITH THE STANDARD SIDEWALL COMPOUND FORMULATION, SIDEWALL CRACKING CAN OCCUR. WHERE EXCESSIVE FLEXING OF THE TIRE SIDEWALL OCCURS, THE CRACKING COULD EXTEND TO THE BODY PLY CORDS. THIS CONDITION COULD LEAD TO THE DEGRADATION OF THE BODY PLY CORDS AND CONSEQUENT LOSS OF INFLATION PRESSURE.
THE LOSS OF INFLATION PRESSURE COULD CAUSE THE TIRE TO RUN UNDER-INFLATED AND RESULT IN EARLY TIRE FAILURE. THE LOSS OF AIR COULD RESULT IN LOSS OF STEERING CONTROL, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN A VEHICLE CRASH.

Potential Tire Failure Lawsuit
Sending defective tires, tire treads or pieces of the tire won’t inherently convince manufacturers to recall damaged products. In fact, if you plan to press charges for injuries sustained from tread failure or blowout, this action may actively hurt your case. Make sure to keep any pieces of critical evidence – including your vehicle – in your possession following the accident, as they may be necessary in a crashworthiness test or other investigation. Always consult with your personal injury attorney before taking any steps to move your case forward.
