Bridgestone Off-Road Tires increases prices 2 to 7 percent

Off Road Tire, U.S. & Canada Tire Sales (BAOR), a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC, says it plans to increase list prices by 2 to 7 percent with some in-line adjustments. The price increases will affect all mining, construction and industrial tires marketed by BAOR. The price increases are scheduled to begin Sept. 1, 2010.

“We continue to search for new, innovative and efficient ways to bring the best product for the best price to all dealers,” says Shawn Rasey, president of BAOR, in a written statement. “At this point, we’ve been unable to completely offset rising raw material, energy and transportation costs with improved efficiencies and therefore we find it necessary to increase prices on our off-the-road tires.”
