AKRON — Tire Business will take a deep dive into the tire industry at the mid-point of 2021 during its next livestream event.

They will review the tire and aftermarket industries, based on a series of stories Tire Business produced over the last month.
What trends can we expect in the second half of the year? How is the supply chain faring? Will product shortages continue?
Michael Mathis, president of Atturo Tire Corp., will join the panel to discuss the year, as well as the impact of pending antidumping duties prompted by the United Steelworkers Union (USW), covering imports of passenger and light truck tires from South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
Mr. Mathis testified before the International Trade Commission, calling attention to the USW's "deceptive position" that "dimensionally similar tires are interchangeable."
The livestream is sponsored by Snap Finance L.L.C.
