Body, Interior & Misc., March 22, 1996

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler has recalled certain 1996 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because the vehicle certification labels indicate a smaller tire size than is actually required. Tires that are too small may not have sufficient load capacity for the vehicle's specified gross weight rating, which increases the risk for premature tire failure. Owners will be mailed an overlay label with the correct information and instructions for installing them. If owners prefer, their dealer can install the label for them.
