- FUEL SAVER SIDEWALL COMPOUND
Helps lower rolling resistance by returning more energy back to the tire (instead of generating heat) than a normal sidewall.
- RECYCLED GROUND RUBBER
Made from ground-up post consumer tires, it contributes to 5% of the tread compound.
- NANO PRO-TECH + SILICA
Improves rolling resistance and contributes to fuel-efficiency and CO2 reduction by controlling the interaction between polymer, filler materials and other rubber chemicals at the molecular level.
- CIRCUMFERENTIAL GROOVES
Help channel water out of the footprint area to improve resistance to hydroplaning.

ECOPIA TIRES Q&A
WHAT IS ROLLING RESISTANCE?
Bridgestone engineers are super-smart, so we asked them to explain what rolling resistance is.
Rolling resistance is the effort required to keep your tires rolling at a given speed. Low rolling resistance tires require less effort to keep in motion than regular tires.
Use the following visualization to help you understand rolling resistance.
Imagine that there are two tires at the top of a hill. One is regular passenger tire, and the other is a low rolling resistance tire. If the two tires are pushed with the exact same force, the low rolling resistance tire will roll farther than the regular tire.
HOW MUCH GAS CAN I SAVE WITH BRIDGESTONE ECOPIA TIRES?
Low rolling resistance tires can generally help you travel farther on one tank of gas than regular tires. For example, the Ecopia EP422 Plus has been shown to help cars and minivans get 20 extra miles per tank.*
Research from the U.S. Department of Energy shows low rolling resistance tires can produce fuel savings of as much as 10%, although it’s around 3% for most drivers. Although that doesn’t sound like much, those numbers can add up over time and lead to substantial fuel savings.
*Based on rolling resistance in lab testing comparing Ecopia EP422 Plus (215/60R16) to Firestone FR710 (215/60R16) from new. Extra 20 miles based on 400 miles per tank. Actual results may vary based on proper tire maintenance, vehicle, driving style, and road conditions.
