Bridgestone Commercial Solutions has debuted a new addition to its fuel-saving Ecopia tire product line. The R268 premium all-position radial is designed for regional and pickup/delivery fleets seeking performance that stands up to high scrub environments while offering fuel efficiency advantages.

With benefits such as high-traction, long wear life, and low rolling resistance, the Bridgestone R268 Ecopia not only answers customer needs, but also expands options to maximize fleet performance. Adding to the appeal is the fact that it is EPA SmartWay® verified and California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant.

Features include:
• Wave Channel Design—reduces groove bottom strain, combating the initiation and spread of irregular wear
• Optimized Rib Distribution—ribs are proportioned for added stiffness, helping to reduce irregular wear throughout the footprint
• NanoPro-Tech™ Compound—limits energy loss for improved rolling resistance and optimum fuel efficiency
• High Scrub Tread Compound—enhances resistance to tread scrubbing, increasing tread life

The new R268™ Ecopia™ is a replacement for both the Bridgestone R250F and the Bridgestone R260F. It is an optional tire on Great Dane trailers.
