ACTION: Grant of petition. AGENCY: Michelin North America, Inc. (MNA), has determined that certain BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 replacement tires do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 139, New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles. MNA filed a noncompliance report dated November 13, 2018, and subsequently petitioned NHTSA on December 10, 2018, for a decision that the subject noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety. This notice announces the grant of MNA’s petition. SUMMARY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Abraham Diaz, Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), telephone (202) 366–5310, facsimile (202) 366–5930. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Overview MNA has determined that certain AllTerrain TA KO2 tires do not comply with paragraph S5.5.1(b) of FMVSS No. 139, New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles (49 CFR 571.139). MNA filed a noncompliance report dated November 13, 2018, pursuant to 49 CFR 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports, and subsequently petitioned NHTSA on December 10, 2018, for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety, pursuant to 40 U.S.C. 30118 and 49 U.S.C. 30120, Exemption for Inconsequential Defect or Noncompliance. Notice of receipt of MNA’s petition was published, with a 30-day public comment period on July 3, 2019, in the Federal Register (84 FR 32010). No Comments were received. To view the petition and all supporting documents log onto the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) website at https://www.regulations.gov/. Then follow the online search instructions to PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 37495 locate docket number ‘‘NHTSA–2019– 0013.’’ II. Equipment Involved Approximately 415 BFGoodrich AllTerrain T/A KO2 replacement tires, size LT275/65R20, manufactured between September 2, 2018, and October 6, 2018, are potentially involved. III. Noncompliance MNA explains that the noncompliance is that the subject tires were marked with an incorrectly sequenced Tire Identification Number (TIN) and therefore, do not meet the requirements of paragraph S5.5.1(b) of FMVSS No. 139. Specifically, the DOT symbol was incorrectly placed between the first and second grouping of the TIN when the symbol should be placed either in front of or below the TIN, thus, both the DOT symbol and the plant code were marked in the incorrect sequence. IV. Rule Requirements Paragraph S5.5.1 (b) of FMVSS No. 139 includes the requirements relevant to this petition. Each tire must be labeled with the TIN on the intended outboard sidewall of the tire, as required by 49 CFR part 574. Either the TIN or a partial TIN should contain all characters in the TIN, except for the date code and, at the discretion of the manufacturer, any optional code, and must be labeled on the other sidewall of the tire. If the tire does not have an intended outboard sidewall, the tire must be labeled with the TIN required by 49 CFR part 574 on one sidewall and with either the TIN, containing all characters in the TIN except for the date code and at the discretion of the manufacturer, any optional code, on the other sidewall. V. Summary of 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: 1. Operational Safety a. The TIN marking noncompliance does not create any operational safety risk for the vehicle. The tires comply with applicable FMVSSs and all other applicable regulations. b. The incorrect marking sequence of the DOT symbol and TIN plant code has no bearing on tire performance. c. The subject tires are properly marked with all other markings required under FVMSS No. 139 such as S5.5(c) maximum permissible inflation pressure and S5.5(d) maximum load rating. The necessary information is available on the sidewall of the tire to ensure proper application and usage. E:\FR\FM\22JNN1.SGM 22JNN1
