Bridgestone Will Raise Tire Prices on March 1

Posted on January 26, 2017

Now there are five. Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC is the latest tire company to announce price increases in 2017.

Effective March 1, Bridgestone says it will adjust prices up to 8% across a range of passenger, light truck, off-the-road and agricultural tire products and tubes in North America.

The reason for the increases? Rising raw material costs “and other market dynamics.”

The new pricing will vary by business unit and by product line.

“Our sales and account teams will soon provide further details to our customers,” adds Bridgestone.
