Cue Anthony Racing collects these state fees when selling tires to consumers as directed by each state.
States use slightly different names for these funds and the amount per tire varies. The state fee Cue Anthony Racing collects is tied to the retail sale of new tires and is passed directly to the state. Each state’s fee will be noted accordingly at check out.
Note that in addition to the state waste tire management fees there may be associated tire disposal fees charged by dealers.
