Rubber companies have been hurt by weaker consumer tire sales. Several factors are contributing to the decline. Higher gas prices have led many consumers to try to limit their miles on the road, in turn, limiting the wear and tear on their tires. High unemployment and weak consumer spending have also made drivers increasingly willing to delay new tire purchases. Commercial truck sales are actually up though, to the benefit of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. which has good exposure to this market. Goodyear's Fuel Max line of products has also fared well as consumers have become increasingly conscious of fuel efficiency.

Overall, it is a tough operating environment for tire companies at the moment. However, those with more commercial truck exposure are better positioned to weather the current conditions.
