There are two separate recalls combined here, one applies to 2002-2004 and the second to 2004-2006 Models.  Please contact you local Toyota dealer to see if your vehicle is included.

Tire Inflation Pressure Listed Incorrectly On Tire Placard

The tire placard may list improper cold inflation pressure for certain 20 inch Nitto tires installed on the vehicle. Dealers will install a new tire placard with the proper inflation pressures listed on it free of charge to resolve the concern.
