New Ecopia Drive Tire Is Designed to Increase Tread Life
The new Bridgestone M713 Ecopia is a SmartWay-verified and California Air Resources Board (CARB)-compliant drive tire for tandem axle long-haul and regional applications.
Bridgestone Americas Inc. says the M713 Ecopia offers an 8% improvement in rolling resistance and a 15% longer tread life versus the M710 Ecopia tire. The tire casing is designed to pair with a Bandag FuelTech retread to help extend tire life and further lower the total cost of tire ownership.
The new M713 Ecopia tire is available in size 295/75R22 and 11R22.5 in the U.S. and Canada, with sizes 295.75R24.5 and 11R24.5 available by March 1, 2020.
