Trelleborg Wheel Systems will raise prices on its agricultural and forestry tires in North America by 8% effective April 1, 2017.

The price increase "is driven by the recent increase in raw material prices," says the company.

Trelleborg is not the first tire manufacturer to raise prices on its agricultural tires. Titan International Inc., Alliance Tire Americas Inc., Michelin North America Inc. and Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC previously had announced increases. For more information, check out these links:
