might need to buy tires quicker than i was planing to

apparently washington thinks they need a bigger cut if i want to buy what i think is the best tire for me, which happens to be a sumitomo t4 manufactured in china, the price might be going up considerably.

well, i thought everyone thought that protectionism was a bad idea... maybe im in the minority
