Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC has expanded its planned price increase to include its entire commercial portfolio.
On Jan. 26 Bridgestone told Modern Tire Dealer of its plan to increase tire prices up to 8% on March 1. At the time the company didn't indicate truck and bus tires, or retread products, would be affected. But Bridgestone says the increase has been extended to include those products.
The increase covers Bridgestone's full consumer and commercial portfolio: passenger, light truck, truck and bus, off-the-road and agricultural tires, as well as retread products and tubes in North America.
