National Highway Traffic Safety Administration August 28, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Tires
Document Number: E7-16934
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-08-28
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
In June 2003, NHTSA published a final rule establishing upgraded tire performance requirements for new tires for use on vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or less. In January 2006, NHTSA published a final rule; response to petitions for reconsideration, which modified certain performance requirements to better address snow tires and certain specialty tires. This document responds to a petition for reconsideration of the January 2006 rule. After carefully considering the issues raised, the agency is denying the petition. We are also making a number of technical corrections in several tire-related Federal safety standards.
