Summary:
      THESE TIRES ARE MISLABELED: "1" EACH SIDE OF THE TIRE WAS BRANDED WITH DIFFERENT TIRE SIZE NUMBERS. "2" THE TIRE PRESSURE WAS BRANDED INCORRECTLY "140 PSI INSTEAD OF THE CORRECT 120 PSI" AND "3" THE LETTERS "DOT" WERE NOT BRANDED BEFORE THE SERIAL NUMBER OF THE TIRE AS REQUIRED BY THE FEDERAL TIRE STANDARD TO INDICATE THAT THE TIRE MEETS THE MINIMUM FEDERAL STANDARDS.
Consequence:
      THE TIRE SIZE MISLABELING MAY CAUSE THE WRONG SIZE TIRE TO BE INSTALLED ON A VEHICLE, AND OVERINFLATION OF THE TIRE UP TO 140 PSI MAY CAUSE THE TIRE TO FAIL, WHICH COULD RESULT IN LOSS OF CONTROL IF THE VEHICLE IS IN MOTION.
Remedy:
      REPLACE THE MISLABELED TIRES.
