Nissan Motor Co Ltd is recalling more than 123,000 Altima sedans in the United States due to concerns about the spare tire.

The recall will allow the automaker to adjust the inflation of the spare tires, which could be over or under-inflated.

About 123,308 Altimas from model year 2013 are affected by the recall, according to documents filed the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Due to a production issue, the tires may not have been properly inflated. In some cases, the over inflation may have been significant enough to hurt the tires’ structural integrity, causing them to fail and increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA said.

Nissan said there were no reports of accidents or injuries related to the issue.
