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.

    All anyone had to do to see they were China made is look at the sidewall where it says MADE IN CHINA! Or look up the DOT code. Not rocket science.
