U.S. Moves to Impose Tariffs on Chinese Tires – Commerce Department Says Tires Are Unfairly Subsidized


By WILLIAM MAULDIN of the Wall Street Journal

The U.S. Commerce Department issued a preliminary finding that typical Chinese-made tires for passenger cars and light trucks were unfairly subsidized and should be subject to punitive tariffs ranging from 17.7% to 81.3%, depending on the manufacturer.

A Chinese unit of U.S.-based Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. , Cooper Kunshan Tire Co. Ltd., would face a 12.5% duty on tire shipments into the U.S. if the preliminary decision is confirmed next year.
