SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 6, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the initiation of the antidumping duty investigation of 
certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires from the People's Republic of 
China (``PRC''). See Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation: 
Certain New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires From the People's Republic of 
China, 72 FR 43591 (August 6, 2007) (``Notice of Initiation''). The 
notice of initiation stated that we would make our preliminary 
determination for this antidumping duty investigation no later than 140 
days after the date of issuance of the initiation. Currently, the 
preliminary determination is due December 17, 2007.

Postponement of Preliminary Determination

    On November 15, 2007, the Titan Tire Corporation, a subsidiary of 
Titan International, Inc. (``Titan''), and the United Steel, Paper and 
Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service 
Workers International Union, AFL-CIO-CLC (``USW'') (collectively, 
``Petitioners''), made a timely request pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(e) 
for a 50-day postponement of the preliminary determination. Petitioners 
requested postponement of the preliminary determination because it will 
provide the Department additional time to evaluate the questionnaire 
responses. Petitioners argue that issues have emerged concerning 
potential PRC government involvement in the export and other commercial 
activities of certain of certain respondents. Finally, Petitioners 
argue that if the Department issues supplemental questionnaires to the 
mandatory respondents and the separate-rates companies, those responses 
would be due in December, which would not provide the Department or the 
parties sufficient time for analysis and comment, or permit the 
Department to issue further supplemental questionnaires prior to the 
currently scheduled December 17, 2007, preliminary determination.
    Under section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act''), if Petitioners make a timely request for a postponement 
of the preliminary determination, the Department may postpone the 
preliminary determination under subsection (b)(1) until no later than 
the 190th day after the initiation of the investigation.
    Therefore, for reasons identified by Petitioners, we are postponing 
the preliminary determination under section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act by 
50 days to February 5, 2008. Pursuant to 735(a) of the Act, the 
deadline for the final determination will continue to be 75 days after 
the date of the preliminary determination, or if extended, up to 135 
days after the date of publication of the preliminary determination in 
the Federal Register.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 733(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
