Continental Tire North America announced a price increase of up to 10 percent on all Continental, General, Semperit and Private Brand Truck tires.

This increase is effective October 1, 2008 and affects all sales channels. The price increase will vary by market line and/or tire size.

This increase is in response to the continued escalation of raw materials that are used in making radial truck tires, such as rubber, steel, carbon black and crude oil.
