The rising cost of raw materials was cited as the primary reason for the increase, according to Rick Phillips, director of commercial sales. “Further, other factors also influenced the increase, such as the costs associated with manufacturing and transportation, which continue to escalate,” he says.

Phillips adds that, despite the cost increase, “Yokohama will continue to bring the best commercial tires to market at competitive prices using our operational efficiencies and latest technology.”
