If you’re looking for tires that will help save you money at the pump, give you more miles per gallon and offer a comfortable ride, Bridgestone fuel efficient tires are a great option for you. Bridgestone Ecopia tires are engineered for the eco-conscious and cost-conscious driver, delivering low rolling resistance - meaning the tire minimizes wasted energy, reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
Why Are Bridgestone Fuel Efficient Tires Fuel Efficient?
Tire rolling resistance is the measure of the energy lost by the tire as it rotates on your vehicle. Essentially, it’s one of the host of items that your engine has to overcome to move the car forward.
The technology featured in Bridgestone Ecopia fuel efficient tires helps reduce the loss of energy as the tire rotates. For example, they have a fuel saver sidewall that reduces heat generation and NanoPro-Tech, which optimizes performance characteristics by controlling the interaction between polymer, filler materials and other rubber chemicals at the molecular level. They are also made from environmentally conscious materials, such as non-aromatic oil and recycled materials.
Fuel Efficient Tire Recommendations
The latest in fuel efficient technology is the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus, which is specially engineered to provide long wear and designed to make your car more fuel efficient.* The Ecopia EP422 Plus tire offers a 70,000 mile treadwear limited warranty** and provides dependable all-season performance. It also provides confident handling and a smooth ride in both dry and wet conditions.
However, if you are looking for tires for your truck the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia is an all-season crossover/SUV tire that has good wear life, provides a quiet, comfortable ride and has a 65,000 mile treadwear limited warranty.**
It’s because of this fuel efficiency, and the need for car manufacturers to hit mandated standards for fuel efficiency, that new cars tend to come equipped with fuel efficient tires that offer low rolling resistance.
Goals for the Future
Throughout the automotive industry, manufacturers are striving to make every aspect of an automobile more efficient. Our goal at Bridgestone is to have a waste-free future for our industry and the communities we operate in. No more tires to landfills, every spent tire turned into a valuable resource, and a healthy environment for current and future generations. Sell a tire, recycle a tire—that’s the idea behind Bridgestone’s Tires 4ward Recycling Program, an initiative that works toward ensuring that for every Bridgestone tire sold in the U.S., one spent tire (that’s a tire that’s no longer in use), is given a valuable second life.
