Mexican-made wheels will be removed from the Ecuadorian market, announces the ministry of industries
Tires of Mexican manufacture will be removed from the Ecuadorian market after detecting manufacturing defects, the Ministry of Industries and Productivity of Ecuador informed in a statement.
According to the ministry, the Cooper Tire & Rubber Company of Mexico identified manufacturing defects in tires produced by the company between February 5 and February 18, 2017, which have been marketed internationally, including Ecuador.
The ministry statement states that the affected tires “have a defective canvas / mesh rubber compound that could cause poor adhesion of this material to the wire cloths, causing their separation, as well as a noise that can be detected in movement of the vehicle and the deformation of it.”
“For reasons of safety and responsibility with its customers, the Mexican firm will withdraw from the Ecuadorian market 17,916 tires sold in the national territory,” the statement said.
The Mipro points out that the product distributors in Ecuador have been informed of the novelty (Conauto C.A., Automotores ELCamer S.A. and Importador Lartizco S.A), so that the tires are replaced by others of the same characteristics. The return includes the mounted and balanced in the vehicle.
