ACTION: Denial of Petition for a Defect Investigation. AGENCY: This notice describes the reasons for denying a petition (DP10– 002) submitted to NHTSA under 49 U.S.C. Subtitle B, Chapter V, Part 552, Subpart A, requesting that the agency conduct ‘‘an investigation of defective products manufactured by Dayton Wheel Concepts, Inc. (‘Dayton Wheel’ and American Wire Wheel, LLC SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00190 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73771 (‘American Wheel’).’’ The petition listed the allegedly defective products and the alleged defect (which varied by allegedly defective product). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bob Young, Office of Defects Investigation (ODI), NHTSA; 1200 New Jersey Ave., SE; Washington, DC 20590. Telephone: (202) 366–4806. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: By a letter dated December 31, 2009, Mr. Thomas M. Gisslen; 707 Miamisburg-Centerville Rd. #158; Dayton, OH 45459, through his lawyer John R. Folkerth, JR; 109 North Main Street; 500 Performance Place; Dayton, OH 45402; petitioned the NHTSA requesting that it investigate ‘‘defective products manufactured by Dayton Wheel Concepts, Inc. (‘Dayton Wheel’ and American Wire Wheel, LLC (‘American Wheel’)’’ and that the Agency ‘‘order * * * Dayton Wheel [to] remedy the indicated design defects and to cease and desist from the manufacture of the defective products until such time as the indicated design defects have been corrected, that all inventory of such defective product be impounded and destroyed, that all defective product be recalled, and that [Dayton Wheel] provide the notice specified in 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30119’’ [basically that Dayton conduct a safety recall of the allegedly defective product(s) and so notify the NHTSA]. NHTSA has reviewed the material provided by the petitioner and other pertinent data. The results of this review and our analysis of the petition’s merit is set forth in the DP10–002 Petition Analysis Report, published in its entirety as an appendix to this notice. For the reasons presented in the petition analysis report, there is no reasonable possibility that an order concerning the notification and remedy of a safety-related defect would be issued as a result of granting Mr. Gisslen’s petition. Therefore, in view of the need to allocate and prioritize NHTSA’s limited resources to best accomplish the agency’s safety mission, the petition is denied.
