PhotoForest River is recalling 165 model year 2017 Prime Time Avenger recreational vehicles.

The vehicles' federal placards may indicate an incorrect tire and rim combination. The placard indicates ST225/75R15E tires with 80 PSI and a rim designation of 15X6.0JJ, while it should indicate ST225/75R15D tires with 65 PSI and a rim designation of 15X5.0JJ.

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

Incorrect tire information can cause the tires to be over inflated, possibly resulting in a tire blowout and 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 March 10, 2017.

Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-862-1025. Forest River's number for this recall is 48-01162017-0310.
