Certain model year 2012 Ghost passenger vehicles manufactured from March 27, 2012, through July 13, 2012 were equipped with 20-inch tires, but the tire information label states that the vehicles were equipped with 19-inch tires. Therefore, the label does not conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims."
Incorrect tire placard information such as an incrorrect recommended pressure may lead to tire inflation errors which could result in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
The owners of the affected vehicles have all received corrected tire information labels, therefore, an owner notification letter will not be issued for this campaign.

In July 2012, this issue was petitioned by Rolls Royce as being inconsequential to vehicle safety.However, in April 2013, Rolls Royce notified NHTSA that all vehicles have been remedied and therefore Rolls royce has rescinded the petition request.
