Summary:
      Forest River, Inc. "Forest River" is recalling certain 2017 Puma recreational trailers, models PT23FBC and PT25RSC. The Federal Placard has incorrect tire and rim size information, indicating ST205/75R15C tires with a 50 psi and rim size of 14X5, when 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."
Consequence:
      The incorrect tire information can cause the operator to install the wrong size of replacement tires, increasing the risk of a crash.
