Bridgestone Americas introduced today its latest tire innovation, the Bridgestone R283A Ecopia steer tire.
Ecopia tires are engineered for high performance use on commercial trucking fleets in long and regional-haul service.
The steer tire features Bridgestone technologies that are designed to improve wear life and fuel efficiency.
“Bridgestone engineered the R283A Ecopia steer tire to deliver the best combination of wear performance and fuel savings,” says Matt Loos, director of truck & bus marketing, Bridgestone Commercial.
“Sophisticated fleets today measure tire performance based on the total life cycle. The R283A Ecopia tire is an innovative solution that will help them maximize every mile.”
The R283A Ecopia steer tire features several performance enhancements over its predecessor, the R283 Ecopia, designed to deliver 21 percent longer wear life and a three percent better rolling resistance.
The R283A Ecopia steer tire is EPA SmartWay® Verified and California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant. The tire is available now in the U.S. and Canada in sizes 295/75R22.5 and 11R24.5 and will be available in 285/75R24.5 and 11R22.5 sizes by April.
