Ecopia

Save more fuel and achieve more miles per tire.

Save $1,394 Annually Per Truck1.
And that's just for starters.

When you outfit your fleet with Bridgestone EcopiaTM tires, the fuel savings are immediate. Then the long-term value kicks in, because you can drive more miles on EcopiaTM tires before you further extend their life with Bandag retreads.
