One of the most common problems with Cooper tires is tread separation. This type of tire problem sometimes causes a blowout, causing the driver to loss control of the vehicle. Sidewall issues, loose belts and tire bulge issues are some of the other common issues with Cooper tires.
Faulty production techniques and poor quality rubber are some underlying causes of the problems with Cooper tires. In the past, numerous complaints by consumers and employees of Cooper Tire and Rubber Company have led to several lawsuits and the recall of at least 15 types of tires. The company settled one class action law suit filed on behalf of 40 million consumers by providing them with free tire replacement and extended warranties.
