Gulf Stream Coach is recalling 24 model year 2016-2017 Ameri-Lite and Super-Lite trailers due to an incorrect tire size listing.

On the Federal Information Certification label, these trailers incorrectly list the tire size as 235/75R-15-C with a wheel size of 15x6, when the correct tire size is actually ST205/75D-14-C with a wheel size of 14x5.5. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

If relying on the label, an incorrect replacement wheel and tire combination may be installed, possibly increasing the risk of a crash.

The company will notify owners and dealers will install a corrected Federal Certification label, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin during July 2016.

For more information, owners may call Gulf Stream Customer Service at (800) 289-8787.
