SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

    Title: 49 CFR Part 575.104; Uniform Tire Quality Grading Standard
    OMB Number: 2127-0519.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information 
collection.
    Abstract: Part 575 requires tire manufacturers and tire brand name 
owners to submit reports to NHTSA regarding the UTQGS grades of all 
passenger car tire lines they offer for sale in the United States. This 
information is used by consumers of passenger car tires to compare tire 
quality in making their purchase decisions. The information is provided 
in several different ways to insure that the consumer can readily see 
and understand the tire grades: (1) The grades are molded into the 
sidewall of the tire so that they can be reviewed on both the new and 
old tires; (2) a paper label is affixed to the tread face of the new 
tires that provides the grades of that particular tireline along with 
an explanation of the grading system; (3) the tire manufacturer or 
brand name owner provides prospective purchasers of tires the 
information for each tire offered for sale at the particular location; 
(4) vehicle manufacturers include in the owner's manual of each vehicle 
the grade information for the tires with which the vehicle is equipped; 
(5) NHTSA compiles the grading information of all manufacturers' 
tirelines into a booklet that is available to the public both in 
printed form and on NHTSA's Web site.
    Affected Public: All passenger car tire manufacturers and brand 
name owners offering passenger car tires for sale in the United States.

    Estimated Total Annual Burden: NHTSA estimates that a cost of 
approximately $35.1 million to tire manufacturers and brand name owners 
is required to comply with this regulation.

ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information 
and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725-17th 
Street NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer.
    Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; the accuracy of the Departments' estimate of the burden of the 
proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology. Comments to OMB are most effective if OMB 
receives them within 30 days of publication.

David M. Hines,
Director, Office of Crash Avoidance Standards.
