Nov. 4, 2004

"Providing tire dealers with training and information on tire pressure monitoring systems will help provide customers with more choices of where they can receive tire care services," says Tire Industry Association (TIA) Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.

TIA and the Rubber Manufacturers Association have made tire pressure monitoring system training a part of their joint five-point policy agenda, announced at this week´s 2004 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nev.

Littlefield says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration´s proposed tire pressure monitoring system rule "has provoked great concern with both groups over when consumers should be warned of low tire pressure."
