RV tire recall - Cooper 22.5's

Here is some SAFETY info.
Report Receipt Date: MAR 15, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16T003000
Component(s): TIRES

Manufacturer: Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.
SUMMARY:
Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. (Cooper) is recalling certain Roadmaster RM234 tires, size 295/75R22.5, manufactured August 6, 2015, to September 5, 2015 (weeks 3115-3515). The affected tires may have a pin-sized hole in the sidewall that can result in a loss of air.
CONSEQUENCE:
A loss of tire air pressure can cause sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Cooper will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires including the mounting and balancing, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Cooper customer service at 1-800-854-6288. Cooper's number for this recall is 4Y.
NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

=========================

I have mentioned that reporting tire failures to NHTSA is something all RV owners should be doing. I also have mentioned that you need to be sure your tires are "registered" so that in the event of a recall the company can contact you.  In the above notice it says the tire company will notify owners of suspect tires but if the owners didn't bother to register their tires there is no way the company or NHTSA can contact the owner.
