Hankook Tire Co. Ltd.'s fiscal 2000 tire sales were $1.22 billion instead of $1.05 billion, as listed in the Aug. 27 Global Tire Report. The additional $167 million in sales came from Hankook's Chinese activities-Hankook Tire Jiaxing Co. Ltd. and Jiangsu Hankook Tire Co. Ltd.-which were inadvertently left out of the data this year. The added sales would not have changed Hankook's ranking at No. 11 globally, although they would have put Hankook on nearly equal footing with No. 10 Kumho Industrial Co. Ltd.
