WASHINGTON (Jan. 20)—Mexico's proposed standards for imported wheels and rims are unnecessary, burdensome and would only serve to block importation of wheels and rims into the country, according to comments filed recently by the Specialty Equipment Market Association. If the proposal becomes law, SEMA said, wheel and rim manufacturers would have to test an unusually large number of wheel and rim samples before the Mexican government would approve their sale, making Mexico an economically infeasible export market for most manufacturers. SEMA representatives in Washington couldn't be reached for further comment.
