Order Reprints

The hottest topic in our industry centers on tire tariffs. Tire manufacturers are anxious to know what the final tariffs will be, and if they will be retroactive in any way.

How is that possible? Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich explains how Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. falls into that category.

Read all about it in his latest B.O.B. blog, "2015 tire tariffs: Why Cooper is stress-free with the wait-and-see approach."
