Unregulated tire rims from Thailand seized.

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) media release, CBP officers in Minnesota seized 2,500 tire rims from Thailand. The shipment from Thailand was labeled as “steel wheels” but CBP officers instead found wheel rims. Photos of the wheels were sent to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) where it was determined the company was not a registered manufacturer and therefore not admissible.

According to a CBP media release, CBP officers in Philadelphia seized tires for violating federal motor vehicle safety standards and regulations. Specifically, the tires were for trailer and mobile home applications and did not contain the mandatory markings that tell important safety information and use for customers. The tires also lacked brand identification that is needed in case a recall occurs.

The media release also further highlights CBP’s function of enforcing the rules and regulations of the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) in order to ensure the safety of the traveling public.
