Vehicle and tire manufacturers are currently working to produce quiet commercial vehicles and tires. While much time has been spent by both government and industry to gather data to cut vehicle noise, it seems that industry and government now wish to interpret this data and make use of it in a short period of time. But this cannot be done without consideration of cost.
We must consider the initial investment of new tires, the labor involved and importantly the national availability of these products as replacements are needed. Only with the full cooperation of government, manufacturers, and the transportation industry can this be accomplished.
