Federal to Raise Prices Across the Board

(Akron/Tire Review) Federal Tire Corp. announced it would increase prices by 5% to 8% across its full line of tires, effective Apr. 1.

The increase applies to Federal and Hero branded tires and results from “rocketing prices of raw materials such as natural rubber, carbon black and other petroleum products and higher transportation costs,” the company stated in a release.

“The present price increase does not fully reflect Federal’s increase in cost, and Federal is doing its best to absorb as much of it as possible,” the tiremaker added. “Presently, we do not foresee any decrease in raw material costs and will continue to closely monitor these costs to determine if any further price adjustments are necessary.”
