Firestone Tires Are Increasing Their Prices In 2022, Report Finds
According to a December 2021 report from Tire Business, Canadian consumers can expect to pay up to 14% more on select Bridgestone and Firestone passenger and light truck tires. Bridgestone also plans to increase prices on certain commercial truck tires and retreads.
This will not be the first time Firestone tire costs have increased in the past year. According to Rubber News, prices went up three separate times in 2021 with manufacturers citing “increased business costs and other market dynamics” (Meyer, 2021).
And if you think you can steer clear of these price hikes by switching brands, think again. Firestone is not alone in this decision; Goodyear and Cooper consumer tires increased their prices four times within the past year, not in a bid to make more money, but rather to recover some of the losses imposed by the realities of the rubber industry, where the cost of rubber have more than doubled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
