Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 125--South Bend, Indiana; Notification 
of Proposed Production Activity; LionsHead Specialty Tire & Wheel, LLC 
(Wheel Assemblies for Specialty Applications); Goshen, Indiana

    LionsHead Specialty Tire & Wheel, LLC (LionsHead) submitted a 
notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its 
facility in Goshen, Indiana. The notification conforming to the 
requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was 
received on May 3, 2016.
    A separate application for usage-driven site designation at the 
LionsHead facility will be submitted and will be processed under 
Section 400.38 of the FTZ Board's regulations. The facility is used to 
produce wheel assemblies for specialty applications, including trailers 
and golf carts. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), FTZ activity would be 
limited to the specific foreign-status materials and components and 
specific finished products described in the submitted notification (as 
described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board.
    Production under FTZ procedures could exempt LionsHead from customs 
duty payments on the foreign-status components used in export 
production. On its domestic sales, LionsHead would be able to choose 
the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to wheel 
assemblies for non-agricultural trailers, golf carts, farm feed 
tenders, grain wagons, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), recreational 
vehicles (RVs), handling equipment, forklifts and other types of 
industrial lifting equipment

and garden equipment; and, steel and aluminum wheel parts (duty rates 
range from free to 4%).
