In-line price adjustments can mean anything

Oct. 6, 2011

When a tire manufacturer says in-line tire price adjustments are needed, what does that mean to you when you want tires? It depends on the line, size, and time of year.

In his latest blog, Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich says the phrase "in-line adjustment" has changed in meaning from the beginning of 2011 to now. And while the adjustments have served a necessariy purporse, it may be time to stop and let tire prices settle.

To find out why the prices may or may not be right, click on "The history and forecast for in-line tire price adjustments in 2011." The blog also includes a link to all third-quarter price increase announcements, including the latest one from Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.
