NLFWWINational Lead Free Wheel Weight Initiative

While the EPA already has in place the National Lead Free Wheel Weight Initiative (NLFWWI), the petitioners contend that this voluntary measure isn't strong enough, and estimate that "no more than one-third of the lead wheel weight market will potentially be changed to lead-free due to the NLFWWI." EPA's partnership program addresses lead wheel weights found in tires of new cars; this petition aims to eliminate lead wheel weights from use in aftermarket tires, believed to account for 66% of all of the wheel weights used.
