Report: Organization Calls for Study to Focus on Tires with Embedded Chips

A national nonprofit organization is taking strides to help ensure that defective tires are removed from the roadway more frequently, with the hope that doing so will save numerous lives and prevent countless injuries. According to Tire Business, the Tire Industry Association (TIA) has released new recommendations to the NHTSA, outlining a multi-step plan that would help make electronic tire identification practices more successful.

Among the proposed stipulations outlined by TIA is the designation of an independent third party who would be responsible for maintaining tire registration information. The nonprofit also called for mandatory vehicle inspection programs nationwide and a new study that would focus on electronic chips that would be embedded in tires and contain information about where and when the tire was manufactured. Currently, this information can be found by through a vehicle’s tire identification number, but the electronic chip would make it more accessible and easier to check with a simple scan of the tire.
