Cooper Tyre & Rubber Company—LT285/75 R16 Trailcutter Radial R/T tyres
What are the defects?
The affected tyres may not have adequate rubber coverage of the belt edge due to low tread gauge in the sholder slot area of the tyres. It may eventually cause cracking at the base of the shoulder slots resulting in exposed belt wire leading to accelerated belt degradation. Continued use may cause the ply cords to break and the tubeless linear to tear and lose the inflating air.
What are the hazards?
Critical driving situations.
