Order Reprints

The silence is deafening. Since the United Steelworkers filed a complaint against the influx of consumer tire imports from China, not a single tire manufacturer has come out for or against a tariff.

Does that mean they want the United States government to implement a duty on these tires? We can't be sure because no one is talking. But there are signs that they are, indeed, pro-tariff.

Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich addresses this issue in his latest blog, "Tire manufacturers will like the new tariff in town." And he gets some help from a friend.
