Reeks of Right wing click bait. Like the “Dems want to ban hamburgers!” emails I used to get.

There are lots of legislation on the table at any given time. Wake me up if this actually passes.
It'll be too late then. Which is what they count on...they float something like this and people accuse anyone who is concerned of being a conspiracy theorist. Then it actually happens and it's too late.

Most people in Virginia are not aware this was passed. SMH
Cause they were told to shut up and quit being alarmists cause "it would never pass".

I think this tire thing will get “traction”. There is an intense focus by some politicians and states to reduce fossil fuel usage. They are successfully mandating EV adoption; why wouldn’t they go after the tires we use…which are indeed less fuel efficient than highway rubber.

To their point…the range of a large battery Rivian R1T with street tires is 352 miles; same vehicle with all-terrain tires is something like 307 miles.

I am not a proponent of a ban of any type…but I am afraid we’re already seeing far reaching changes that will limit our driving choices. I will avoid politics…but please keep these issues in mind when casting your vote.

If I had a buck for every time somebody posted sensationalist alarmist nonsense on this forum I'd probably be rich enough to retire.
If I had a dollar for every time a woman found me unattractive, women would find me attractive.

"Specialty tires sold in low volume, such as off road tires, would probably be exempt."

But who knows what that actually means.
KO2s are definitely not sold in low volume.
But there was also this, "Neither California nor Washington proposes to regulate the original tires installed by manufacturers on new cars."
So KO2s being one of Jeeps primary go-to tires would likely be exempt as well.

We can sit back and blame far left, far right, but when do we blame ourselves for not becoming more knowledgeable BEFORE we cast our vote and BEFORE we solidify our beliefs? Follow the money and learn real truth. Not what the left or right is spewing.
This is a fact....
