PACIFIC GROVE, Calif.—The Tire Retread Information Bureau (TRIB) has mailed an informational letter to Congress about tire debris.
The mailing included an invitation to legislators to have their names added to the TRIB mailing list and receive a free Retread Tire Information Packet and set of videos about rubber on the road.
``We felt it was important to explain the true causes of tire debris on our highways, especially now that many activist groups seem to be targeting retreads,'' said Harvey Brodsky, TRIB's managing director.
Retreaders and tire dealers who would like a copy of the mailing can contact TRIB at (831) 372-1917.
