Bridgestone Americas this fall introduced two wide-base tires, the Greatec M835AEcopia tire for the drive position and the Greatec R197Ecopia tire for the trailer position.
Designed for use on tandem-axel applications in long-haul service, the new Greatec wide-base Ecopia tires are built for better fuel efficiency and deliver up to 20 percent longer wear life than the previous generation offering. In addition, the trailer tire delivers 6 percent better rolling resistance than the previous tire.
The new tires are compatible with Bandag FuelTech retreads. The Greatec M835AEcopia tire and the Greatec R197Ecopia tire are available in size 445/50R22.5.
