Titan Tire Corp. has implemented a series of price increases on its lines of aftermarket Titan, Goodyear and General off-the-road, farm and construction tires.

The increases – ranging from 4 percent to 35 percent – are to offset rising costs for natural and synthetic rubber, carbon black, fabric, energy and transportation charges. The new rates were scheduled to go into effect over this past weekend on June 1.

Parent firm Titan International, Inc. is a holding a company owning subsidiaries that supply wheels, tires and assemblies for consumer applications such as all terrain vehicles along with off-highway equipment used in the agricultural and earthmoving/construction industries. Titan traces its roots to the Electric Wheel Co. of Quincy, Ill., which was founded in 1890 by John A. Stillwell and three associates to produce wheels for wagons and farm implements.
