Oregonís speaker of the house has introduced legislation that would ban any and all aftermarket parts from Oregonís vehicles. This new legislation goes beyond the typical big-brother stuff the car enthusiast community repeatedly has to deal with. Oregon actually wants to regulate which tires youíll be allowed to put on your car.
SEMA speculates that the state would most likely require that any tire fitted to a vehicle have a rolling resistance equal or less than the tires that came on the car from the factory, because that would help the carís gas mileage. Never mind that less rolling resistance = less traction = more dangerous for everyone on the road. This law is just an example of stupid, unthinking politicians who feel like they need to pander to green voters by needlessly limiting the freedoms of everyone.
