Yokohama Tire to adjust prices on commercial tires

Yokohama Tire will implement a price increase of an average of 8 percent on all of its light and medium commercial truck tires in the United States, effective April 1.

There will also be in-line adjustments, which will be announced at a later date. The rising cost of raw materials is the primary reason for the price increase, the company says.
