Cooper Sigma Regent Tire Recall
If you or a loved one have ever equipped your motor vehicle with Cooper Sigma Regent tires, then you need to pay close attention to what the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has to say about them. Because of their history of hitting the market with damages and defects, consumers who use them are at a heightened risk of sustaining a blowout, tread separation, rollover, roof crush or other serious accident – all of which can result in major injuries, even death.

WHEN THIS CONDITION EXISTS, IT COULD RESULT IN ACCELERATED AIR LOSS. THE LOSS OF AIR COULD CAUSE THE TIRE TO RUN UNDER-INFLATED AND RESULT IN EARLY FAILURE. LOSS OF AIR MIGHT RESULT IN LOSS OF STEERING CONTROL WHICH COULD RESULT IN A VEHICLE CRASH. DRIVING AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS SHOULD BE AVOIDED UNTIL THE TIRES HAVE BEEN INSPECTED AND REPLACED.
COOPER WILL NOTIFY ITS CUSTOMERS TO HAVE THEIR TIRES INSPECTED AND REPLACED FREE OF CHARGE.
OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON NOVEMBER 6, 2000.

Do You Have a Defective Tire Case?
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.
Cooper Tires and the NHTSA
Cooper is no stranger to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The bureau – part of the Department of Transportation (DOT) – creates the federal regulations for vehicle and tire safety, and is authorized to require that manufacturers recall their tires that do not meet them.
