Today, the US Department of Commerce announced the affirmative preliminary determination in the antidumping duty (AD) investigation of imports of steel wheels 12 to 16.5 inches in diameter from China, finding that exporters from China have been dumping certain steel wheels in the United States at margins ranging from 38.27 to 44.35 percent.

As a result of the decision, the DOC will instruct US Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of certain steel wheels from China based on these preliminary rates.

In 2017, imports of certain steel wheels from China were valued at an estimated $87.2 million. The petitioner is Dexstar Wheel, a division of Americana Development, Inc.

The DOC is scheduled to announce the final determination on or about July 2, 2019.

If the final determination is affirmative, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) will be scheduled to make its final injury determination on or about August 15, 2019.
