(d) Its load rating shall be that specified either in a submission made by an individual manufacturer, pursuant to S4, or in one of the publications described in S4 for its size designation, type and each appropriate inflation pressure. If the maximum load rating for a particular tire size is shown in more than one of the publications described in S4, each tire of that size designation shall have a maximum load rating that is not less than the published maximum load rating, or if there are differing maximum load ratings for the same tire size designation, not less than the lowest published maximum load rating. mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES V. Summary of MNA’s Petition: MNA described the subject noncompliance and stated its belief that the noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. In support of its petition, MNA submitted the following reasoning: (a) Application—The subject tires are marked with the correct maximum load and pressure load index, and load description (‘‘Light Load’’) to ensure proper application. Additionally, the tires have the correct tread sticker label showing the correct size designation, part number, etc. to ensure proper application. (b) Usage—The tire is marketed as a performance summer tire commonly used for competition events on tracks or autocross courses. Thus, the users of these products are enthusiasts who are attentive to details about vehicles and equipment such as tires. In such competition events the vehicles are normally operated at the lightest loads possible for performance optimization. These tires are normally not used in situations involving vehicles with full passenger or cargo loads. (c) Other Markings—All other markings conform to the applicable regulations. (d) Performance—The subject tire meets all performance requirements of FMVSS No. 139. In the event the tire is fitted to an application calling for the European Tire and Rim Technical Organization (ETRTO) standard load application of up to 850 kgs because of the missing ‘‘P’’ prefix, there should be no performance concerns. The tire has been tested to FMVSS No. 139 using the Application No. Docket No. ETRTO standard load as a basis and it fulfills all performance requirements. MNA concluded by expressing the belief that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety, and that its petition to be exempted from providing notification of the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118, and a remedy for the noncompliance, as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120, should be granted. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, any decision on this petition only applies to the subject tires that MNA no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, any decision on this petition does not relieve equipment distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant tires under their control after MNA notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.
