Coming to you from A&R Tire, talking about how to buy tires. Some of the least popular tires that we see, in our opinion, is your low-cost, entry-level stuff coming in as imports out of China. Some of those tires don't have your belt stiffeners, your bead wedges, your nylon cap plies. And the customer really doesn't--from what they see is "Geez, I can get four for $99," or "I can get, you know, I can afford these today." But what they're not finding out is that there's a lot of safety features built into those higher-end products that are--they put a lot of research and development in their products. So we try to stay away from a lot of your low-end imports. We don't think it satisfies the customers' needs long term. And most of the time, you can look at those brand names on the side and you'll realize just by reading that name that that's something that's been imported, or it says maybe "Taiwan or China." Belt stiffener, again, bead wedges, nylon cap plies, to reduce those costs, they have to take out those features, and those are performance and safety features.
