Bridgestone Launches New Long-Haul Steer Tire

The company says the new tire is engineered to reduce operating costs by delivering ultra-high fuel efficiency, the highest ever offered on a Bridgestone long-haul steer tire.

Bridgestone Americas today announced it is expanding the company’s fuel-efficient Ecopia commercial truck tire line with the introduction of the all-new Bridgestone R213 Ecopia tire.

The company says the new tire is engineered to reduce operating costs by delivering ultra-high fuel efficiency, the highest ever offered on a Bridgestone long-haul steer tire.

The company says the Bridgestone R213 Ecopia outperforms the previous-generation Bridgestone R284 Ecopia tire. Additionally, a redesigned tread pattern paired with an innovative compound reduces tire weight, improving rolling resistance and fuel efficiency by 6%.

Key engineering improvements and innovations in the Bridgestone R213 Ecopia tire include:

  • A four-rib tire design with patented NanoPro-Tech™ polymer to limit energy loss and enhance stiffness for fuel efficiency.
  • An Intellishape™ sidewall design containing less bead filler volume to reduce tire weight.
  • Center rib sipes to evacuate water and improve traction on wet surfaces.
  • Directional stress relief sipes to absorb shoulder edge forces in the footprint for longer wear.
  • A redesigned defense side groove to better resist irregular wear, helping improve fuel efficiency and durability.
