Forest River is recalling up to 68 model year 2016 Stealth Evo recreational vehicle trailers, models CSJT280RKS and CSJT290QBS, due to a tire problem.

The affected vehicles may have had tires of the wrong load range installed, which may result in premature tire failure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims and Motor Home/Recreation Vehicle Trailer Load Carrying Capacity Information for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) or less."

Unexpected tire failure increases the risk of a crash.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will supply new correct tires and rims free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 18, 2016.

For more information, owners may contact Forest River customer service at (909) 873-3777, ext. 52.
