DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AK76 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Tire Fuel Efficiency Consumer Information--Part 2 

This rulemaking would respond to requirements of the Energy Independence & Security Act of 2007 to establish a national tire fuel efficiency consumer information program for replacement tires designed for use on motor vehicles. On March 30, 2010, NHTSA published a final rule specifying the test procedures to be used to rate the performance of replacement passenger car tires for this new program (75 FR 15893). This rulemaking would address how this information would be made available to consumers.

Statement of Need:

The EISA mandated the TFECIP to be finalized by December 2009. In 2010, NHTSA finalized a regulation to require the testing of replacement tires for rolling resistance (fuel efficiency), wet traction (safety) and treadwear (durability). In December 2014, the White House announced that the agency would publish the final rule by 2017.

Summary of the Legal Basis:

This rulemaking is mandated by Public Law 110140, 121 Stat. 1492.


This rule is statutorily mandated.

The agency estimates that annual net benefits, in millions of 2013 dollars, will range between $1.2 and $12.7 at a 3% discount rate, and between $0.2 and $10.9 at a 7% discount rate.


The agency believes there are no significant risks related to this rulemaking.
