Summary:
      VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: CERTAIN BUSES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 120, "TIRE SELECTION AND RIMS FOR MOTOR VEHICLES OTHER THAN PASSENGER CARS." THE TIRE PLACARD LABEL CONTAINS AN INCORRECT RECOMMENDED COLD TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE OF 60 OR 65 PSI. THE CORRECT INFLATION PRESSURE IS 80 PSI.
Consequence:
      IF THE TIRES ARE UNDER-INFLATED, IT COULD REDUCE THE TREAD LIFE OF THE TIRE, AND THE TIRE COULD DEGRADE TO A POINT OF ALLOWING SUDDEN AIR LOSS.
Remedy:
      NEW LABELS WILL BE PROVIDED TO THE OWNERS. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING DECEMBER 2001. OWNERS WHO DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE LABEL WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT KRYSTAL AT 1-800-845-4883.
