  • THE EXCUSE’S FOR THE INCREASE IN TIRE COST IN THE PAST WAS ALWAY’S BECAUSE OF THE COST OF “PETROLEUM” USED TO FABRICATE A TIRE. WOULDN’T YOU THINK.,NOW THAT THE PRICE OF OIL HAS BEEN DROPPING FOR SEVERAL MONTH’S.,THAT THE COST OF PURCHASING A TIRE WOULD LOWER ?? I REALLY BELIEVE THAT (BRIDGESTONE/FIRESTONE) MARKETING DEPT MUST BE TAKING LESSON’S FROM THE GOVERMENT., BECAUSE THESE ARE THE EXACTLY SAME PRACTICE’S THAT THEY USE ON THE GENERAL PUBLIC EVERYDAY.. JUST KEEP ON INCREASING & IF NOBODY COMPLAIN’S.,NOTHING WILL BE DONE ABOUT THE MATTER.
