FULLERTON, Calif. (Oct. 31)—Yokohama Tire Corp. has postponed a tire price increase for a month because of inventory problems caused by the recent West Coast port shutdown. The U.S. arm of Japan's Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd. planned to raise prices for medium duty truck, off-the-road, light truck commercial, consumer passenger and light truck tires on Nov. 1. The hike was delayed until Dec. 1, the company said. The price increases range from 3 to 6 percent, depending on tire type.
