Bridgestone/Firestone raises prices

Dec. 7, 2001

Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire (BFNT) LLC is hiking Bridgestone and Firestone brand commercial truck and Bridgestone, Firestone and Dayton brand passenger and light truck tire prices by up to 3%, effective Feb.1, 2002.

BFNT's associate and private brand passenger and light truck prices also will increase up to 3% on that date.

BFNT, a subsidiary of the recently created Bridgestone/Firestone Americas Holding Inc., is raising prices due to "increasing costs," say company officials.
