Order Reprints

If China is backing its tire exporters with large subsidies, should we fight fire with fire by implementing tariffs?

The United Steelworkers union thinks so. Most tire manufacturers, although quiet on the issue, think so. At least one domestic tire distributor thinks so.

And the United States International Trade Commission is close to agreeing with them.

Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich is not so sure. Recent events have made the issue confusing, at least in his mind.

What may be turning him around on the subject? To find out, check out his latest blog, "Are tire subsidies from the Chinese government the root of all evil?"
