Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. announced it will raise prices up to 6% on all its major and associate brand consumer, commercial and off-the-road tires. The increases will be effective Jan. 1, 2006.

The company says increases in raw material, energy and transportation costs have necessitated the increases.
