FINDLAY, Ohio (Aug. 21)—Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. has doubled production in three of its sport-utility vehicle and light truck tire lines to meet increased consumer demand in the wake of Bridgestone/Firestone Inc.´s tire recall.

Cooper is recommending to dealers the Discoverer Radial, Discoverer A/T and Discoverer H/T tire lines as suitable replacements for Ford Explorers, Mercury Mountaineers and other SUVs and light trucks.
