SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 
before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB 
for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register 
providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of 
the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of 
information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must 
be included in such a document. Under OMB's regulation (at 5 CFR 
1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following:
    (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) How to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected;
    (4) How to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    In compliance with these requirements, NHTSA asks for public 
comments on the following collection of information:
    Title: Tires and Rims Labeling.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0503.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection of 
information.
    Form Number: This collection of information uses no standard form.
    Abstract: The labeling of motor vehicle tires and rims with the 
information required by the regulations and standards benefits motor 
vehicle manufacturers and consumers. Primarily, these labeling 
requirements help ensure that tires are mounted on appropriate rims and 
that the rims and tires are mounted on vehicles for which they were 
intended. If tires and rims were not labeled, mismatching of tire and 
rim sizes would likely occur, often resulting in poor tire performance. 
The absence of the vehicle label specifying vehicle loads, axle loads, 
and recommended tire inflation pressure would likely result in improper 
tire selection by a tire dealer or vehicle owner. Mismatching of rims 
and tires can greatly reduce the performance of tires, may cause tire 
and rim failure, and may result in vehicle handling and stability 
problems, which could result in loss of vehicle control.
    Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Nos. 109, 117, 119, 
129, and 139 establish a fixed format for the labeling requirements to 
be placed into or onto both sidewalls of tires manufactured for use on 
motor vehicles. Each new tire manufacturer, brand name owner, and 
retreader must use these guidelines to label each tire manufactured by 
engraving tire and retreaded tire molds with the appropriate labeling 
information.
    FMVSS Nos. 110 and 120 specify a fixed format for the placard 
labeling requirements to be placed on each motor vehicle. In addition, 
FMVSS Nos. 110 and 120 require that additional information be labeled 
onto the finished rim used on vehicles covered by this standard.
    Affected Public: Business or other for profit.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 274,491 hours.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,800.
    Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology.
