Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 120, "Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars."
CONSEQUENCE:
An inaccurate label could lead to improper vehicle loading specifications which could cause axle failure which may result in an increased risk of a crash.
