The USTMA projects that total tire shipments in 2022 will reach 340.2 million units, up 5 million tires from a year ago.

The U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) is projecting tire shipments in 2022 will surpass the record-setting numbers recorded in 2021. Overall, the group expects 5.1 million more tires will be shipped this year.

And while replacement passenger tire and replacement truck tire shipments are both expected to increase, the USTMA is predicting a slight dip in replacement light truck tire numbers.

The USTMA expects original equipment figures to rebound in all three categories.
