Three States Consider Tire Age Bills

Tire Business (subscription required) reports that three states — Hawaii, California and New York — have become the latest states to consider bills that would regulate the age of tires sold within their borders. In late 2008, the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs issued a notice of pre-proposal, soliciting comments on the feasibility of requiring the state’s tire dealers to disclose the age of the tires they sell.

The Hawaii bill would make it illegal to sell a tire more than six years after its date of manufacture, while the New York bill would require the manufacture date of the tire to be clearly molded on both sides “in a non-coded fashion.” The California bill would require all tire dealers to provide written information on sale documents about the age of each tire sold to customers, in English, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Tagalog and Korean. Customers would have to initial the information to signify they had read and understood it, and dealers would have to keep the documents for at least three years after the sale.
