Cooper Tire & Rubber is recalling 1,983 CS5 Grand Touring 225/55R17 and Mastercraft LSR Grand Touring 225/55R17 tires with DOT codes 2920 through 3220.
The tires may have low tread gauge in the shoulder slot area which could cause tread separation and tire failure.
This may cause the tire to rapidly deflate, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Cooper Tire will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect and -- if necessary -- replace the tires free of charge.
Cooper Tire has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification.
