Daimler Vans USA is recalling nearly 1,260 2016 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vehicles equipped with reinforced front axles that are labeled with a tire pressure that is too low, the company announced Tuesday.

Daimler said that operating the affected vehicles, with low front tire pressure may result in tire damage, increasing the risk of a crash. The label with the incorrect tire pressure is located on the B-pillar.

The company has not yet announced the date when it plans to notify affected customers.

If necessary, Freightliner Sprinter and Mercedes-Benz dealers will check and replace the tire label at no cost to the customer.
