    We are aware that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has
completed its defect investigation into the tires in question, and will issue
an initial defect decision, the next step toward a forced recall.

ensure the safety and trust of our customers and their families.  We have
replaced almost three million Wilderness AT tires during the last two months.
