A story in the May 2 issue on China Tire Holdings Ltd. forming a joint venture company with Orion Tire Corp. incorrectly reported that Orion owns Apollo Tire, a 17-store dealership in the Los Angeles area. Stateside International, at one time the parent of Orion Tire, had purchased Apollo Tire in October 1992, but later returned control to the original owner. The new joint venture, also called Orion Tire, is not connected with Stateside International nor the old Orion Tire Corp. Another article in the May 2 issue, titled ``American Pie: Yokohama wants a bigger slice,'' incorrectly reported that the tire maker has 200 points of sale in the United States. Yokohama actually has 4,200 points of sale nationwide.
