A new tariff would last longer than 3 years

Before you know it, a tariff will be placed on consumer tires being imported from China. But when will you "know" it? And how long will it last?

When the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) extended the due date for its preliminary determination on the need for a tariff from Sept. 17 to Nov. 21, the timeline changed. That hasn't kept a number of industry analysts, including Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich, from weighing in on the various issues surrounding the possible (inevitable?) tariff.

In his latest blog, Ulrich tries to answer the two questions posed in the first paragraph. He also addresses what may be the biggest plus or minus if the ITC thinks a tariff is necessary.
