Original Recall from the NHTSA
Model Year(s):
Manufacturer's Report Date:

March 22, 1996

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number:

96V027000

NHTSA Action Number:

N/A

Component:

EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS

Potential Number of Units Affected:

2,500

Summary:

THE INVOLVED VEHICLES HAVE TIRE/WHEEL SPECIFICATION INFORMATION ON THE VEHICLE CERTIFICATION LABEL WHICH INDICATES A SMALLER SIZE TIRE THAN REQUIRED. THIS DOES NOT COMPLY WITH LABEL REQUIREMENTS OF FMVSS NO. 120, "TIRE SELECTION AND RIMS FOR MOTOR VEHICLES OTHER THAN PASSENGER CARS."

Consequence:

CONSEQUENCE OF NON-COMPLIANCE: THE SMALLER TIRES WOULD NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT LOAD CAPACITY FOR THE VEHICLES SPECIFIED GROSS WEIGHT RATING, INCREASING THE POTENTIAL FOR A PREMATURE TIRE FAILURE AND AN ACCIDENT.

Remedy:

OWNERS WILL BE MAILED AN OVERLAY LABEL WITH THE CORRECT TIRE/WHEEL CERTIFICATION INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLING THE LABEL ON THEIR VEHICLES. IF OWNERS PREFER, THEIR DEALER CAN INSTALL THE LABEL FOR THEM.

Notes:

SYSTEM: EQUIPMENT; CERTIFICATION LABEL. VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: LIGHT DUTY TRUCKS AND VANS, 6800 AND 9000 LB. GVW ONLY. NOTE: IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A NEW CERTIFICATION LABEL WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME, CONTACT CHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403. ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-800-424-9393.
