The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is requesting public comment on whether to update the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for tires to address new technologies.
NHTSA is specifically requesting comments on the existing strength test, the bead unseating resistance test, and the tire endurance test.
The agency also wants feedback on the current use and relevance of some tire marking regulations. In addition to considering updates for new technologies, NHTSA will seek to reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens.
Comments due Feb. 18. For more information, click here.
