Sean Kane. TIA reps. Same room. 'Nuff said

Order Reprints

Sean Kane and the Tire Industry Association (TIA) find themselves on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to tire aging.

Kane sponsored a bill in California requiring full disclosure surrounding a tire’s age before it is purchased or installed. As you might expect, TIA was against.

What would happen if Kane and TIA representatives found themselves in the same room? No need to wonder -- it happened recently during the first International Roundtable at the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas.

To find out if any sparks flew, read Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich's latest B.O.B. blog by clicking, "Main event: TIA vs. Sean Kane at the SEMA Show." Or you can visit www.moderntiredealer.com at your leisure and click the "Blog" channel found near the top of the home page.

And if you have any thoughts about the (historic? chance? inevitable? anticlimactic?) meeting, please leave a comment!
