March 10, 2015  By Renée Francoeur


March 10, 2015 – Paccar, manufacturer of medium and heavy-duty trucks, has issued a recall for several Peterbilt truck models due to incorrect information on the tire labels.

The tire information label may indicate incorrect tire pressure, understated by 5 PSI, or a tire/rim/inflation pressure combination for which the maximum GAWR is slightly below the GAWR of the vehicle, said Paccar.

“Underinflated tires may not be capable of supporting the maximum load as reflected by the GAWR and GVWR specified on the certification label, which could cause tire failure resulting in injury and/or damage to property,” explained Transport Canada.

New tire and rims certification label will be mailed out to those affected, which, according to Paccar, is 242,442 units.
