Let Your Voice Be Heard Regarding OTR Tire Tariffs

June 14, 2016

The OTR tire tariff situation is getting down to the nitty-gritty. The U.S. Department of Commerce is getting ready to make its first preliminary rulling, this one on countervailing duty margins against tire imports from India and Sri Lanka.

A related preliminary decision on anti-dumping margins will follow later this year on Aug. 11.

If you are against these decisions, especially if they hurt your bottom line, is there anything you can do to advance your own cause? The answer is a resounding "Yes!"

In his latest blog, Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich not only outlines the issues (they can be complicated), but also lists the email addresses and phone numbers of the people to contact.

If you will be affected, either directly or indirectly, by tariffs placed on OTR tires from India or Sri Lanka, check out Ulrich's blog, "OTR Tire Tariffs: How to be Heard if YOU Are Being Injured."

Who's side are you on? Are you pro-tariff (like Titan Tire Corp. and the United Steelworkers union) or anti-tariff? Read the blog, then let us know what you think by leaving a comment! We will share them all (no salty language, please).
