|Recall Summary:||PACCAR Incorporated (PACCAR) is recalling certain model year 2006-2016 Peterbilt 587, 579, 567, 389, 388, 387, 385, 382, 379, 378, 367, 365 and 357 trucks manufactured July 25, 2005, to February 26, 2016. The affected vehicles may be equipped with Tire and Rim Certification Labels that list a tire pressure below the actual correct amount.

|Hazard:||If the tires are underinflated due to the incorrect inflation pressure listed on the label, the truck may not be able to carry the maximum gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) load listed without experiencing tire failure which would increase the risk of a crash.|
|Remedy:||Peterbilt will notify owners and mail them a corrected Tire and Rim certification label, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Peterbilt customer service at 1-940-591-4000. PACCAR's number for this recall is 215-D.|
