Bridgestone Increases Dayton Truck Tire Prices

Posted on March 5, 2019

Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC is imposing a double-digit increase on all Dayton-brand truck and bus tires sold in the U.S.

The company says as of March 5, 2019, Dayton truck and bus tire prices will go up 20% due to "increased business costs and other market dynamics."

The 20% hike follows a 10% increase in September 2018.

Members of Bridgestone's commercial sales team are contacting customers to provide more detailed information about the increase, the company says.
