The R284 EcopiaTM delivers premium performance for Long-Haul and Regional Service
When you put EcopiaTM tires in all three positions, you can lower your total cost of ownership versus Michelin® X-LineTM and Goodyear FuelMax®. It's like putting money in the bank.
When you outfit your fleet with Bridgstone 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.
Our patented NanoPro-Tech™ polymer technology limits energy loss for improved rolling resistance. This means better fuel economy without compromising durability or mileage performance.
The IntelliShape™ sidewall utilizes a slim bead that reduces bead filler volume and helps to reduce tire weight. In addition to greater fuel savings, IntelliShape™ contributes to lower rolling resistance and increase durability.
Bridgestone’s unique Turn-In-Ply design moves the ply end around the bead bundle, away from the high-stress areas of the sidewall. Besides a stronger, more resilient bead, Turn-In-Ply creates an exceptionally durable tire that can be easily retreaded.
To reduce stress at the belt edges, some Ecopia truck tires have Waved Belt™, a patented wave-shaped strip of steel cords that wrap circumferentially to maintain a stable footprint. Waved Belt™ reduces casing growth and increases retreadability.
Ecopia vs Michelin X-Line
Ecopia vs Goodyear Fuel-Max
*,**Bridgestone R283A Ecopia (in steer position), M710 Ecopia (in drive position), and R197 Ecopia (in trailer position) in size 295/75R22.5 load range G, compared to the equivalent size and load range of Michelin X-Line Energy Z (in steer position), X-Line Energy D (in drive position), and X-Line Energy T (in trailer position), and to the equivalent size and load range of Goodyear Fuel Max LHS (in steer position), Fuel Max LHD G505D (in drive position), and Fuel Max LHT (in trailer position). Rolling resistance and wear results obtained from Bridgestone internal TLCC model which incorporates third party SAE J1269 rolling resistance testing and measures results over the life of the tire. Savings calculated assuming the average price of fuel selected by Savings Calculator user, 5/32nds pull point, 80,000 lbs. total vehicle weight, for a class 8 tandem-drive axle tractor and single trailer combination traveling 120,000 miles/year. Projected wear results based on field test data across multiple users in long haul fleet application. Projected wear of Goodyear FuelMax LHT assumes same wear as Bridgestone R197 Ecopia. Actual results will vary depending on several factors such as tire size, operating conditions, maintenance, road conditions, and driving style.
