PhotoForest River is recalling 14 model year 2017 Cherokee recreational trailers, model ORCKT244JR-64.

The federal placard has incorrect tire and rim size information, indicating ST205/75R15C tires with 50 PSI and a rim size of 15X5.5JJ, when the actual combination is ST205/75R14C tires with 50 PSI and a rim size of 14X5.5JJ.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims."

The incorrect tire information can cause the operator to install the wrong size of replacement tires, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a corrected federal placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 8, 2017.

Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-541-995-3447. Forest River's number for this recall is 64-03082017-0339.
