Forest River is recalling 44 model year 2017 Puma recreational trailers, models PT23FBC and PT25RSC.
The federal placard contains incorrect tire and rim size information, indicating ST205/75R15C tires with a 50 psi and rim size of 14X5; the correct information is ST205/75R14C tires with a 50 psi, and 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 provide a corrected Federal Placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 8, 2017.
Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-0588. Forest River's number for this recall is 420-03072017-0338.
