According to Jayco, Inc., the Federal Certification and Tire Labels list the incorrect tire size as ST205/75R14C instead of LT235/75R15C. As such, the vehicles do not conform to the Federal Motor vehicle Safety Standard number 120, “Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars”. And, if the consumer replaces the tire with the incorrect tire listed on the label, it may cause uneven wear on the tire and towing instability could increase the risk of a crash.
