Insurer Reporting Requirements; Reports Under 49 U.S.C. on Section 33112(c), 31008 [05-10695]

Download as PDF 31008 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 103 / Tuesday, May 31, 2005 / Notices noncompliance on the operational safety of vehicles on which these tires are mounted. The correct label for max load at max pressure is ‘‘10200 lbs @ 120 psi’’. The incorrect label says ‘‘10,000 lbs @ 115 psi’’. Although the max load is labeled to be less on the incorrect label than the actual max load, the pressure is also lower, which has an effect on the load bearing ability of the tire. Referencing the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization tire tables for that size tire reveals that a 445/ 50R22.5 tire that has a max load at max pressure of 10,200 lbs @ 120 psi, will be able to support 9860 lbs @ 115 psi. Therefore, at 115 psi the tire will be able to support 140 lbs less than the 10,000 lbs stated. Hence the incorrect label would allow the tire to be overloaded at the stated max pressure of 115 psi. In consideration of the foregoing, NHTSA has decided that the applicant does not meet its burden of persuasion that the noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. Accordingly, its application is denied and the applicant is not exempted from providing the notification of the noncompliance as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118, and from remedying the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120.
