The prices of Bridgestone, Firestone and Continuum over-the-road tires will also be raised starting Aug. 1. The total average increase for all products will be 11 percent.

The tire maker’s president Kurt Danielson said volatile market conditions, intense supply pressures and escalating ray materials have contributed to the price increase.
