FULLERTON, Calif. — Yokohama Tire Corp. has announced it will implement a price increase of up to 8 percent on all of its commercial truck tires in the U.S., effective February 1.

There will be in-line adjustments, as well, which will be announced at a later date.

“Manufacturing and logistics costs associated with commercial products, unfortunately, have continued to be at high levels,” said Rick Phillips, Yokohama director of Commercial Sales. “These, along with domestic and global economic pressures, have made initiating the price increase unavoidable. Despite the industry challenges, Yokohama will continue to use the latest technologies and environmental procedures to produce the best commercial tires at competitive prices.”

Yokohama Tire Corporation is the North American manufacturing and marketing arm of Tokyo, Japan-based The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., a global manufacturing and sales company of premium tires since 1917.
