Tire rules to improve safety

WASHINGTON -- Federal regulators late last week moved closer to making tires safer for drivers with the dismissal of a lawsuit challenging tire monitor rules and the introduction of regulations making it easier for consumers to register their tire purchases so they can be contacted in case of a recall.

A three-judge federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit by tire makers who said that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's ruling requiring tire pressure monitoring systems wasn't strict enough. Tire makers argued that NHTSA's regulation put drivers and passengers at risk because it didn't warn drivers of low tire pressure soon enough; didn't require the systems to work with replacement tires and allowed tire monitors to be tested under conditions that don't take into account cold weather extremes, which can alter tire performance.

Don't know about yours but mine went off at 1 pound difference!
