Bridgestone Ecopia EP422

Brand: Bridgestone
Tire: Ecopia EP422
Category: Grand Touring All-Season
UTQG (treadwear): 480 A A

This tire is a member of the Ecopia family that Bridgestone manufacturers to help drivers increase their fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions. The Ecopia EP422 was designed to provide year-round traction with those two goals in mind. This tire makes use of some cool in house Bridgestone technology, including NanoPro-Tech, which is how they can make a tire with lower rolling resistance that still has good grip, even in light snow.

Just as with the other tires in the Ecopia family, these tires will net you somewhere in the 10% range of increased fuel economy. If you're getting about 30 miles per gallon on the highway, you can expect that number to get up around 33 miles per gallon when using these tires. They also have a high treadwear rating for a tire in this performance category, so can expect them to have a long life. While this is a relatively new tire, many drivers have reported getting well over 50,000 miles out of a set under normal driving conditions. So if you're into saving fuel and live in a part of the world with four actual seasons, this tire might be the right one for you.
