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:

reports to NHTSA regarding grades of all passenger car tire lines they 
offer for sale in the United States. This information is used by 
consumers of passenger car tires to compare tire quality in making

ways to ensure the consumer can readily see and understand the tire
