NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations has announced a price increase for Firestone truck and bus tires sold in the U.S. and Canada.

Firestone tires will increase in price by 4% in the U.S. and Canada. Tires shipped on or after Feb. 1 will reflect the price increase, the company said in a statement.

The price increase is due to “increased business costs and other market dynamics,” the company announced.

    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.

    I agree with Gary wholeheartedly…. Just another reason to buy a different tire, never was much for that BRAND at any time.
