DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AL87 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Technical Corrections and Clarifications Related to Tires and Rims 

This notice proposes to amend FMVSS No. 109 and FMVSS No. 119 to clarify that types of specialty tires, intended for use on trailers (trailer tires), are subject to the requirements of FMVSS No. 119, new pneumatic tires [for heavy and specialty vehicles], and not FMVSS No. 109, new pneumatic and certain specialty tires [for passenger cars]. This action was initiated in response to petitions for rulemaking from the Tire and Rim Association (TRA). If finalized, this action would help remove unintended ambiguity from the certification process and would include corrections to various tire and rim standards to improve clarity.
