NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations and Bridgestone Canada Inc. are planning to increase prices on Firestone-brand radial truck and bus tires sold in the U.S. and Canada by 4 percent, effective Feb. 1.
The move is in response to increased business costs and other market dynamics, the companies said, without elaborating.
Members of the U.S. and Canadian commercial sales teams are contacting customers to provide more detailed information about the changes.
The price change announcement comes just a few months after Bridgestone Americas raised prices on all Bridgestone- and Firestone-brand truck and bus tires and Bandag retreads sold to national account, national fleet and national fleet-preferred accounts in the U.S. and Canada.
Those adjustments, effective Nov. 9, varied by undisclosed amounts by product line and service range, Bridgestone said at the time.
Bridgestone also raised prices 10 percent on Sept. 24 on Dayton-brand truck and bus tires sold in the U.S. and Canada.
