Bridgestone’s tandem-axle long-haul/regional tire

Updated Feb 18, 2020

Bridgestone’s M713 Ecopia tire is suited for tandem-axle applications in long-haul and regional service, with a casing designed to pair with a Bandag FuelTech retread to help extend tire life. The M713 Ecopia features an IntelliShape sidewall that helps reduce weight to minimize rolling resistance, and it leverages the company’s proprietary Fuel Saver Sidewall compound and patented NanoPro-Tech polymer technology to reduce energy loss and help enhance fuel economy. It features 3D siping to provide more biting edges to help increase traction in all weather conditions, an optimized belt package for casing durability and reduced tire weight, a high-rigidity tread pattern to help control movement of the tread blocks for less wear and lower rolling resistance, and a continuous shoulder design to uniformly distribute weight and torque to impede irregular wear. The tire now is available in size 295/75R22 and 11R22.5 in the United States and Canada, with sizes 295.75R24.5 and 11R24.5 available by March 1.
