The article reports that Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. might be sourcing tires from India, as a result of its decision to increase the number of tires it obtains from low-cost countries. The disclosure came in the firm's 2007 10-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. There is no off-take agreement as yet with an Indian producer, but the company is evaluating possible manufacturing partners in a number of countries, including joint ventures and greenfield startups.
