The R197 Ecopia for dual tire assemblies and the Greatec R135 Ecopia for wide base singles feature Bridgestone breakthroughs in low rolling resistance rubber compounding, and in tread and casing design.

Ecopia radials are designed to be fuel-efficient, smooth wearing and highly retreadable. The R197 Ecopia and Greatec R135 Ecopia incorporate optimized tread depths and tread designs, along with exclusive irregular wear-fighting technologies. Both new tires have sturdy sidewall protector ribs that help shield the casing against damage from curbing, cuts and abrasions.

Designed with a long wearing 11/32-inch tread depth, the R197 Ecopia tire has numerous cross-rib sipes and straight grooves for solid wet traction. The tire features Bridgestone's new IntelliShapeTM sidewall design that removes weight without sacrificing durability. The R197 Ecopia radial also utilizes Bridgestone's Defense GrooveTM design to fight shoulder edge wear, along with extensive stress-relief siping to combat river and wavy wear.

Offering the very latest in fuel-efficient design and rubber compounds, both in tread and sidewalls, the Greatec R135 Ecopia features Bridgestone's innovative Waved BeltTM casing design. Also, along with stone rejector platforms to fight stone drilling, the manufacturer's exclusive Turn In PlyTM bead design con- tributes to enhanced casing durability and retreadability.

The Greatec R135 Ecopia wide base trailer radial has both Defense GrooveTM and Equalizer RibTM technologies to resist irregular wear, along with a Bridgestone-exclusive shoulder construction that promotes even shoulder wear for long original tread life.

The R197 Ecopia trailer radial is available in popular standard and low profile sizes. The Greatec R135 Ecopia is available in a 445/50R22.5 size.

EPA SmartWay® verified and fully complaint with CARB requirements, Bridgestone's new Ecopia trailer radials help preserve the environment by conserving fuel and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and by reducing waste by enhancing treadwear and retreadability. The latest trailer tires from Bridgestone will also help cut costs for Great Dane customers by promoting optimum fuel economy, both when the tires are new and when retreaded with Bandag FuelTech® products that complete the Ecopia solution.
