Bridgestone hikes truck and bus tire prices
Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions (BBTS) has raised prices on its Bridgestone brand radial truck and bus tires up to 6% in the U.S.
The increase went into effect today, July 1.
Kurt Danielson, vice president, sales and marketing for BBTS, says the company "continues to look for ways to balance costs and continue to deliver a premium package of value to our dealers and fleet customers. Today, however, we have reached a point where we must pass along some of the increased costs that are outside of our control, including energy, fuel and raw materials."
