    I'm at work and just saw this, Sorry if someone has already posted it!!:)

    NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 10T003
    Synopsis:
    Cooper Tire is recalling certain Discoverer H/T and Discoverer LSX tires, size 245/70R17, produced between November 15 and December 12, 2009. These tires fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles." At various mileages, the subject tires may develop and exhibit tread chunking or cracking in the tread shoulder area. Tread chunks may separate from the tire casing resulting in body damage to the vehicle or the driver may lose control resulting in a crash. Cooper Tire will notify owners and replace the tires free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during March 2010. Owners may contact Cooper Tire Customer Relations toll-free at 1-800-854-6288.
