Bridgestone Introduces Ecopia Wide Base Tires

Bridgestone Commercial Solutions (BCS) offers its new Bridgestone Ecopia truck tire and Bandag FuelTech retread solution. These two product lines, five new tires and four retreads, are designed to work together.

Specially engineered compounds paired with matching retread patterns promote an eco-friendly solution that continues optimal low rolling resistance from new Ecopia tire to FuelTech retread while extending casing life.

The Ecopia line includes the Greatec M835 Ecopia drive and Greatec R135 Ecopia trailer radials – for fleets that have adopted wide base singles.

Both tires utilize Bridgestone's patented NanoPro-Tech polymer technology in the tread compound and a High Rigidity Tread pattern to promote even wear for long original tread life – while reducing rolling resistance to conserve fuel.

In addition, a proprietary Fuel Saver Sidewall compound lowers heat generation to reduce fuel costs, both new and when retreaded.

Bridgestone's patented Waved Belt casing and Turn In Ply bead enhance casing durability for outstanding retreadability. Retread patterns based on the Greatec M835 Ecopia and R135 Ecopia are available in the Bandag FuelTech fuel-efficient retread line.

Ecopia radials are EPA SmartWay verified and comply with CARB requirements.

Bridgestone Ecopia and Bandag FuelTech tires are designed for optimum low rolling resistance while maximizing removal mileage and retreadability – for a lower total cost of ownership.
