Albany -- Tires made right here in Albany could be a danger on the road. Cooper Tire is recalling more than 48,000 tires.

They were produced in a 10-week period from December through February. Cooper voluntarily recalled the light truck tires after concerns of side wall separation.

The affected tires include:

  •  Cooper Discoverer ATR (sizes LT235/85R16 and LT265/75R16)
  •  Dean Wildcat Radial (size LT265/75R16)
  •  Mastercraft Courser A/T 2 (sizes LT235/85R16 and LT265/75R16)
  •  Mentor All Terrain Radial SXT (size LT265/75R16)

The recall comes as the company's stock falls. Some analysts say the company continues to have operational difficulties at the Albany facility.

For more information on the recall you can call Cooper Tire's consumer relations department at 1-800-854-6288.
