R283A Ecopia Steer Tire

February 23, 2016 - Products


Bridgestone's R283A Ecopia steer tire is designed for durability and fuel efficiency in regional fleet applications.

The R283A Ecopia steer tire features performance improvements over its predecessor, the R283 Ecopia, with 21% longer wear life and 3% better rolling resistance.

An IntelliShape sidewall design uses less bead filler volume, reducing tire weight and minimizing rolling resistance for improved fuel efficiency. IntelliShape also requires fewer renewable resources without compromising casing durability and retreadability.

The tire features a tread compound that works with Bridgestone’s NanoPro-Tech polymer technology that limits energy loss and contributes to longer wear life.

A lower cap/base junction delays exposure to the base compound, reducing the occurrence of irregular wear and allowing tires to travel further between retreading and replacement.

The R283A Ecopia includes other casing features such as Bridgestone’s proprietary shoulder design that optimizes the footprint for long, even wear, and Fuel Saver Sidewall to reduce heat generation and energy loss.

The R283A Ecopia steer tire is EPA SmartWay Verified and California Air Resources Board compliant.  The tire is available in sizes 295/75R22.5 and 11R24.5 and will be available in 285/75R24.5 and 11R22.5 sizes by April.
