Washington DC -- Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co. has issued a statement regarding the safety of its tyres, after presenting the NHTSA (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration) with more details and data.
Hangzhou Zhongce said it believes that its light truck tyres, sold in the US are safe. In a 3 Aug statement, the company said that its tyres have performed exceptionally well on American roads and that many tyre distributors had praised their quality and durability.
The tyre-maker said that it takes the allegations made by FTS (Foreign Tire Sales Inc.) very seriously, but believes that the organisation submitted its report to the NHTSA without the necessary data to make an informed conclusion about the safety of the tyres.
â€œWe will continue to provide NHTSA with information needed to make a more accurate assessment about the quality and safety of the tyres,â€ said the company.ss
