Nashville, Tennessee – Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations and Bridgestone Canada Inc. are increasing prices on Firestone-brand radial truck and bus tires sold in the US and Canada.
The 4% price hike will be effective 1 Feb.
The move is in response to increased business costs and other market dynamics, the companies said, without elaborating.
Members of the US 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 in the US and Canada.
Those adjustments, effective 9 Nov, varied by undisclosed amounts by product line and service range, Bridgestone said at the time.
Bridgestone also raised prices 10% on 24 Sept on Dayton-brand truck and bus tires sold in the US and Canada.
