Yokohama to hike commercial tire prices

Sept. 14, 2005

Yokohama Tire Corp. will raise its medium radial truck, OTR and commercial light truck tires by 3% on Oct. 1.

"Additional in-line adjustments will be made," say Yokohama officials. "Detailed pricing will be provided to dealers prior to the actual increase."

The continued escalation of fuel, freight and energy costs make the hike necessary, they say.
