Pattern Details

Thanks to a significant improvement in rolling resistance and irregular wear resistance, the Greatec R197 tire delivers 6% better RRC, and up to 20% longer removal miles** than the previous generation, Greatec R135 without compromising the benefit of outstanding retreadability*.
  • NanoPro-Tech™ compound limits energy loss for improved rolling resistance and optimum fuel efficiency.
  • Optimized Shoulder Design enhances the irregular wear resistance by optimizing the footprint for even wear balance.
  • Fuel Saver Sidewall limits energy loss using a proprietary sidewall compound to help conserve fuel, both when new and retreaded.
  • Sidewall protector Ribs preserve casing durability by fighting curbing damage with thick ribs on both sidewalls.
  • Patented Waved Belt design preserves casing durability by minimizing stress at the belt edges to maintain a stable footprint and reduce casing growth.
  • Patented Turn-In Ply design promotes casing durability by wrapping the body ply around the bead bundle to reduce ply-end stress.
An achievement in eco‑friendly performance, Ecopia is Bridgestone’s most fuel-efficient truck tire.
SmartWay® Verified and CARB Compliant
The SmartWay Technology program and CARB guidelines determine regulations for tractor and trailer tires that improve the overall fuel efficiency, aerodynamics and performance of your vehicles.
Designed specifically for our Ecopia casings, FuelTech Retreads use state-of-the-art technologies for the ultimate in fuel savings and eco-performance.

* Retreadability is considered based on the non-retreadable ratio in the market within the specific size, 445/50R22.5.

** The improvement in tread wear is the project mileage based on the Bridgestone internal proprietary field test result around 48% worn stage.
