SUMMARY OF CIMS TIRE REGISTRATION PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
CIMS provides a wide range of products and services, designed to insure that tire manufacturers, private brand owners, independent tire dealers, tire distributors, mass merchandisers and automobile dealerships meet all of the tire registration, recordkeeping and recall requirements of NHTSA’s tire registration regulation (49CFR Part 574).
Tire Registration, Retention & Recall Systems
For tire manufacturers and brand owners who use a “designee” to comply with the requirements of the NHTSA tire registration regulation, CIMS provides a complete registration system. CIMS captures the registration data provided by the tire dealer and tire purchaser and stores the data for the required 5 years. In the event of a safety related tire recall CIMS retrieves the registration information and provides the tire manufacturer/brand owner with the consumer information. The tire manufacturer/brand owner or CIMS provides the consumer with a direct, timely notice of the recall. CIMS also provides the client with reports of the results of the recall.
POS Electronic Tire Registration
CIMS receives data directly from the tire dealer’s Point of Sale (POS) system, providing a low cost way for the dealer to complete the tire registration process. This method of registering tires increases consumer safety significantly by insuring that every tire the dealer sells is registered.
E-Tire Registration Website
CIMS E-Tire Registration Website also provides dealers the ability to register tires electronically. Tire dealers subscribe to CIMS E-Tire Registration Website and enter their customers’ tire registration information online. CIMS E-Tire Registration Website, as well as POS, allows tire dealers to register 100 percent of tires sold.
All-Brand Tire Registration Forms
CIMS provides independent multi-brand, multi-outlet tire dealers with a simple, cost effective way to comply with NHTSA’s tire registration regulation. CIMS All-Brand Tire Registration Form is used to record the required tire registration information for any tire brand the dealer sells, eliminating the confusion of ordering and stocking individual manufacturer’s forms.
Tire Industry Clearinghouse
The CIMS Tire Registration Clearinghouse processes the tire registration forms received from tire dealers and tire purchasers. CIMS retains and completes the registration process for CIMS tire registration clients and forwards to the appropriate registration center tire registration information that belongs to tire manufacturers or private brand owners who are not CIMS clients.
Tire Manufacturer/Brand Owner Registration Forms
CIMS provides a tire registration form printing and distribution service for tire manufacturers and private brand owners. For some of these clients CIMS ships forms in bulk to their distribution points. For other clients CIMS distributes forms directly to independent tire dealers. CIMS tire registration clients find this to be a very cost effective way to handle the distribution of their tire registration forms.
