Uniroyal Goodrich Tire Company; Receipt of Petition for 
Determination of Inconsequential Noncompliance

    The Uniroyal Goodrich Tire Company (Uniroyal) of Greenville, South 
Carolina, has determined that some of its tires fail to comply with 49 
CFR 571.109, Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109, ``New Pneumatic 
Tires,'' and 49 CFR 571.119, Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 119, 
``New Pneumatic Tires for Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars,'' and has 
filed an appropriate report pursuant to 49 CFR Part 573, ``Defect and 
Noncompliance Reports.'' Uniroyal has also petitioned to be exempted 
from the notification and remedy requirements of the National Traffic 
and Motor Vehicle Safety Act (15 U.S.C. 1381 et seq.) on the basis that 
the noncompliance is inconsequential as its relates to motor vehicle 
safety.
    This notice of receipt of a petition is published under Section 157 
of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act (15 U.S.C. 1417) 
and does not represent any agency decision or other exercise of 
judgement concerning the merits of the petition.
    Paragraph S4.3.3(b) of Standard No. 109 and paragraph S6.5(d) of 
Standard No. 119 specify that each tire be labeled with an 
identification number. The last digit of this identification number 
should represent the year of manufacture.
    In the 46th week of 1993, Uniroyal manufactured approximately 6,500 
tires in several brands and sizes with an incorrect year of manufacture 
contained in the tire identification number. The last digit in the 
identification number on the subject tires is incorrectly marked ``4,'' 
signifying 1994. The last number should be ``3,'' signifying 1993.
    Uniroyal supports its petition for inconsequential noncompliance 
with the statement that it does not ``believe that this error will 
impact motor vehicle safety since only the year of manufacture is 
incorrect.'' All tires are sold only in the replacement market.
    Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and 
arguments on the petition of Uniroyal, described above. Comments should 
refer to the Docket Number and be submitted to: Docket Section, 
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, room 5109, 400 Seventh 
Street, SW., Washington, DC, 20590. It is requested but not required 
that six copies be submitted.
    All comments received before the close of business on the closing 
date indicated below will be considered. The application and supporting 
materials, and all comments received after the closing date, will also 
be filed and will be considered to the extent possible. When the 
petition is granted or denied, the notice will be published in the 
Federal Register pursuant to the authority indicated below.
    Comment closing date: February 14, 1994.

(15 U.S.C. 1417; delegations of authority at 49 CFR 1.50 and 49 CFR 
501.8)

    Issued on: January 6, 1994.

Associate Administrator for Rulemaking.
