AKRON (Sept. 12)—The publisher of Rubber & Plastics News today called for the formation of a bilateral, industrywide commission to serve as an early warning system to help head off potential tire problems in the future. The commission should include members from appropriate governmental agencies and the tire-manufacturing industry, RPN Publisher Robert Simmons said at a news conference during the International Tire Exhibition and Conference, being held in Akron. The results of the deliberations of the commission would put in place structures that would help protect consumers should something of the magnitude of the Bridgestone/Firestone Inc. tire recall happen again.
