ABSTRACT
The article informs that imports will continue to dominate the niche market of trailer tires for camping and boating customers. According to Jeff Kreitzman, CEO of American Pacific Industries Inc., no one knows for sure how many trailer tires are imported versus manufactured in the U.S. Kreitzman further said that trailer tires, like other high-volume tires, tend to bring low margins.
