Michigan Gov. Signs Bill to Aid Used Tire Sales Record Keeping

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed legislation that requires a person selling used tires to comply with the same standards set for used vehicle parts. The newly signed law, from Bill 331, amends Public Act 119 of 1986, which deals with the buying and receiving of used motor vehicles parts.

Under the new amendment a Michigan dealer purchasing or receiving any used tires, tire wheels or rims or continuous tire tread can only pay for those items with a check, money order, bank draft or direct deposit.

The law aims to “make it easier for law enforcement to track the sale of stolen tires and related parts and work toward reducing such thefts. Tire theft is said to particularly be a problem for rental care companies,” the state said.

Under the new act, a dealer violating this law would be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in prison, a fine of up to $1,000, or both. A second or subsequent violation would be a felony punishable by up to two years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000, or both, the state said.

The Bill 331 was signed into law on May 10 and will take effect in 90 days.
