Continental Tire North America (CTNA) has announced a price increase of up to 8 percent on all Continental and General Tire Brand Original Equipment truck tires in the NAFTA Region. The price increase will vary by tire size and market line. The change is a result of the continued cost increases of transportation, energy and raw materials according to Tom Fanning, director of Original Equipment truck tires for the Americas. The increase will be implemented for the NAFTA market on August 1, 2008.
