Tiremakers React to TPMS Court Decision

June 26, 2007

WASHINGTON— The U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled that four tiremakers, the Tire Industry Association (TIA), and Public Citizen Inc. “lack standing” in their lawsuit challenging the final tire-pressure monitoring system rule, according to Modern Tire Dealer magazine.

BFNT, Cooper Tire & Rubber Co., Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., and Pirelli Tire LLC joined TIA and Public Citizen in bringing a lawsuit against the Department of Transportation two years ago. The suit challenged the government’s requirement that tire-pressure monitoring systems only need to detect when one or more of a vehicle’s tires are 25 percent or more below the recommended inflation pressure.
