Summary: CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2008 LONG CHIH TRAILERS FAIL TO CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 110, "TIRE SELECTION AND RIMS" IN THAT THEY ARE MISSING A TIRE PLACARD LABEL. ALSO, THE GVWR ON THE CERTIFICATION LABEL ON SOME OF THE TRAILERS IS INCORRECT. FINALLY, THE GVWR AND GAWR MUST BE STATED IN POUNDS.

Consequence: THE MISSING AND INCORRECT INFORMATION COULD LEAD TO IMPROPER VEHICLE LOADING OR TIRE INFLATION WHICH COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Remedy: CORRECTED LABELS WILL BE MAILED TO CONSUMERS WITH INSTRUCTION TO PROPERLY AFFIX TO TRAILER.
