U.S. Increases Tariffs on Some OTR Tire Imports from China

Posted on June 15, 2017

A “ministerial error” has led to another recalculation of tariff rates for off-the-road tire manufacturers in China.

In the anti-dumping investigation for the period September 2014-August 2015, the Department of Commerce (DOC) says the rate for Xuzhou Xugong Tyres Co. Ltd., (also known as Armour Rubber Co. Ltd. or Xuzhou Hanbang Tyre Co. Ltd.) should be changed from 33.08% to 33.14%.

Because Xugong was one of the primary companies the DOC investigated (the agency calls them a "mandatory respondent"), the rise in its rate also increases the rate of the following nine companies to the same 33.14%:

Shiyan Desizheng Industry & Trade Co. Ltd.

Qingdao Jinhaoyang International Co. Ltd.

Sailun Jinyu Group Co. Ltd.

Weifang Jintongda Tyre Co. Ltd.

Zhongce Rubber Group Co. Ltd.

Weihai Zhongwei Rubber Co. Ltd.

Qingdao Qihang Tyre Co.

Qingdao Free Trade Zone Full-World International Trading Co. Ltd., and

Trelleborg Wheel Systems (Xingtai) China Co. Ltd.
