Bridgestone Commercial Solutions has introduced the Bridgestone M760 Ecopia tire, a premium drive radial that is EPA SmartWay-verified and CARB-compliant. The newest addition to the Ecopia tire line, the M760 is said to deliver high traction and long mileage in a fuel-efficient and retreadable design. The company says buyers of the M760 don’t have to make the usual trade-off of fuel economy for traction.
Specially designed edges are said to grip the roadway to improve traction and last longer, and the ‘IntelliShape’ sidewall design reduces overall tire weight allowing greater fuel savings without sacrificing durability.
The M760 Ecopia is primarily designed for use in on-highway, long-haul and regional service, but also can be applied to pick-up-and-delivery service. The product works well on single- and tandem-axle trucks providing good traction in severe weather conditions, making the tire ideal for a broad range of fleet applications, Bridgestone says.
Additional features include optimized groove width that helps combat casing damage and improve drilling resistance, increasing casing lifespan and improving retreadability. Multiple sipes provide improved traction on wet and dry surfaces, the company says, and the extra-wide tread delivers added stability
The M760 Ecopia comes in four sizes. The 295/75R22.5 is now available while remaining sizes (285/75R24.5, 11R22.5, 11R24.5) will launch in 2014.
