Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions has increased prices on its Bridgestone brand truck and bus radial tires by 6 percent in the U.S., as of July 1.

The hike follows on the heels of a May 1 boost in prices on its Bandag retread material by 6 percent in the U.S. On June 1, the company also raised prices up to 6 percent on its Firestone and Dayton brand truck and bus radial tires.

"Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions continues to look for ways to balance costs and continue to deliver a premium package of value to our dealer and fleet customers," said Kurt Danielson, vice president of sales and marketing, BBTS. "Today, however, we have reached a point where we must pass along some of the increased costs that are outside of our control including energy, fuel and raw materials."
