    FULLERTON, CA (Oct. 21, 2010) – Due to continued increases in the cost of raw materials, manufacturing and transportation-related expenses, Yokohama Tire Corporation announced it will increase prices by up to 8% on all of its consumer tires, which include passenger, performance and light truck tires. The increase will go into effect December 1, 2010. There will be in-line adjustments, as well, which will be announced at a later date.


    I imagine other mfg's will follow suit.

    Expect anything that requires rubber to go up. I have bungie cord made for one of our products lines (run my own rope and cord business) and we just had a increase on it due to the cost of rubber going up.

    I haven't heard anyone complain....

    I wonder if Taiwan/China are working on importing knockoffs yet. Are compounds patented?
