This document extends the comment period on a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) published on August 31, 2005 (70 FR 51707) that addresses motor home and travel trailer overloading by proposing to amend the Federal motor vehicle safety standard (FMVSS) on tire selection and rims for motor vehicles other than passenger cars. We also proposed a related amendment to our safety standard for tire selection and rims for light vehicles. The comment due date was October 31, 2005. In a submission dated October 14, 2005, a coalition of trade associations representing vehicle manufacturers and dealers asked NHTSA for an extension of this due date. This document grants that request and extends the comment due date for the NPRM to November 30, 2005.
