Recall of Avon Cobra Chrome Tires

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released recall information that reveals that Cooper Tire & Rubber Company Europe Ltd. (Cooper Europe) is recalling certain Avon Cobra Chrome motorcycle tires, size 240/50R16, manufactured April 8, 2018, through June 1, 2019 (DOT date codes 1418-2119).
