288,000 passenger tires being recalled by Cooper

FINDLAY Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. said yesterday that because of concerns about slow leaks and cracking, it is recalling about 288,000 replacement

tires used on passenger cars, pickup trucks, and sport-utility vehicles.

The tiremaker said no crashes or injuries linked to the recalled tires had been reported.

Involved are a small portion of the 40 million tires the firm produces each year. The company will replace the tires for free.

Owners are being warned to avoid driving at highway speeds until the tires have been inspected and replaced.
