The tires may have been over-cured

Nissan North America is recalling 126,809 model year 2019-2020 Altimas and model year 2018-2021 Titans with Continental tires.

One or more tires may have been cured for too long during production.

Over cured tires may develop a break in the sidewall, resulting in sudden air loss or belt edge separation which could lead to tread/belt loss.

Either condition can cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tires, and replace them -- as necessary -- free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin April 28, 2021.

Owners may contact Nissan customer service at (800) 867-7669. Nissan's number for this recall is PC798.
