Pep Boys Offers Customers Affected By Recent Cooper Tire Recall Assistance Obtaining Free Replacement Tires

PHILADELPHIA - November 22, 2006 

The Cooper Tire & Rubber Company has announced a recall of 8,583 tires produced by Cooper Tire for Pep Boys between August 8 and August 19, 2006. Of these tires, over 3,400 have already been accounted for and removed from Pep Boys' inventory. The affected tires are listed in PDF below.

Customers who purchased one of the named tires in the size indicated above between August 13 and October 27, 2006 should examine the tire's sidewall to identify the DOT number. If the DOT number matches one of those listed above, customers should return the tire to Pep Boys for replacement at no charge. Pep Boys has an adequate supply of replacement tires in its inventory to handle this recall. Pep Boys is in the process of notifying all customers who may have already purchased the affected tires.

Cooper Tire & Rubber Company, who manufactures these tires for Pep Boys, has determined that some of the subject tires may have been produced with non-conforming belt wire coat stock. If placed in service, the subject tires may develop a belt separation due to a reduced ability to prevent corrosion of the steel wires in an instance where moisture reaches the steel belt, which may result in a vehicle crash. The tires are being recalled to ensure customer safety and purchase satisfaction. The recall is only for those specific tires listed above, which were produced between August 8 and August 19, 2006. Consumers with questions about this recall may call Pep Boys Customer Relations for additional information at 1-800-737-2697, option 3.
