WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Commerce Department has found China unfairly subsidized steel wheels exported to the United States and sold them at prices below fair value, the department announced on Friday in its final determination.

If the U.S. International Trade Commission issues a final finding that U.S. producers are being harmed, then tariffs on the products will go into effect for five years.
