    These are the best tires I have had on my car. Great handling, traction and it does help with the fuel. I would recommend these tires to anyone.

    I drive a Honda Insight 2010, tire size 175-65/15. Have put on 15,000 miles, with 8/32″ tread left on the tires. The Insight is a light weight car, even so these tires are quite good in ride comfort and outstanding in noise level. Most of my driving is on the interstate, speeds 55 – 70, even so I got about a 2 mpg increase by putting on these tires, 44.8 mpg on a long 1,200 mile trip. The car has 65,000 miles on it.Its a far cry from the 15,000 miles from the stock tires(Dunlop).

    I drive 950 miles a week to and from work mostly on 2 lane roads. Purchased this tire to replace Michelins. While the Michelin tires were a very good tire, this is a much quieter tire with much better ride. Traction was good in snow. Handling was alot better than with the Michelins. I would not hesitate to buy these tires again.

    I bought this set of passenger touring due to the noise level and comfort of ride. I love them! Quiet, great handling and better than what I expected. I have already spoken to several people about them.

  • Submitted by Kevin on September 5, 2012

    I would give these tires a 9.5/10 on all counts. Quiet, smooth, brakes well on dry and wet surfaces, cornering good given the size and suspension of the car. Unfortunately, hardly any snow this winter, but what we had, the tires were great. I also put these tires on a 2009 Sion xB, and the wear on both cars has been excellent. I have the tires rotated and alignment checked every oil change. I highly recommend the Ecopia tires.

    These tires perform much better than the Yokohama Avid S on my Prius. I saw an increase in my mpg by about 2-3mpg. They do give off a floaty feeling but almost all LRR tires give off a floaty feeling. I recommend changing your stock tire from Yokohama to something else. My brake issue when driving and hitting bumps went away as soon as I replaced them with tires that had more traction. If you drive a Prius and would like to save on gas I recommend getting these tires. Especially when there is a $70 mail-in-rebate going on.

  • Submitted by John on September 5, 2012

    The tires felt great when first installed and have performed great. I have driven in fairly heavy rain and had no issues. The ride feels smoother than the previous/factory tires. These are the new tire for my car.

  • Submitted by Phil on September 5, 2012

    The Ecopia EP422 is an excellent grand touring tire with low rolling resistance. It’s particularly well suited to cars like the Toyota Camry that aren’t overtly sporty. Other than LRR, the most noteworthy characteristics (to me, anyway) of the tires in their first 900 miles of use have been the fine ride quality and low levels of noise.

  • Submitted by Edward on September 5, 2012

    Put these on my wife’s car . The ride is great and the road noise is really great you can hold a conversion now with out yelling at each other . I will have to buy tires for my Camry Hybird in about 6 months and these are what I will get . Plus her mileage has increased 4 miles to the gallon

    I have a Jetta 2.0 so loads of power it does not have. My immediate observation when I had these installed was that the car felt faster on take-off. Not talking corvette fast but it struggled less to get up to speed I was really feed up with this car lugging around its weight but I’m much happier. I’m not affiliated in any way with Bridgestone but the low rolling resistence of these tires are apparent. My rpm on the highway also dropped and I kid you not of about 1000rpm. Yesterday I had to do a fast launch into a intersection and was surprise to not here any slip, also should mention that I did the typical steering wheel side to side when I first drove on them and wasn’t expecting that much grip at all from these tires! So in closing if your looking for a wicked deal tire for something with a weak engine so far I can’t see how I could of made a better choice. I rarely review but always read then for this I had to. Good job Bridgestone hope you keep these goingqn

  • Submitted by Janet on September 5, 2012

    Much quieter than the original Continentals that came with the car. I have 2k on these tires so far and have noticed a vast improvement in wet & dry traction. I have also seen a 3 mi increase in my fuel economy. Highly recommend this tire.

  • Submitted by Jim on September 5, 2012

    So far the mileage has improved approx. 2.5 miles per gal on the highway, very impressed as I didn’t believe the ad. I’ve read about steering response issues, but these tires made a new car out of my I30 especially on curves. I just purchased another set for another vehicle because they’re very quiet on the interstate. These tires walked through the water without hydro planing or pulling. I will have to see how they do in ice and snow, the tread is very flexible so should be good on ice. Extremely pleased with these tires as I have purchased many brands over 35 years of driving.

  • Submitted by Wes on September 5, 2012

    A fantastic, inexpensive American-made tire. Tires are quiet, have great traction and help deliver great mileage. I have experienced no problems in highway driving, turning, or braking. They are so good I will probably get them for my compact SUV. I could not be happier with these tires, especially considering the price.

  • Submitted by Karen on December 11, 2013

    Love these tires! What a huge difference they make to my driving style. They have handled the wet, snowy, and icy roads just like dry roads. My friend noticed a difference riding in the car without knowing I had these tires installed. They are quiet, too. If I win I will purchase another set for my Sebring Convertible. I highly recommend these tires.

  • Submitted by Ryan on December 20, 2013

    We replaced the factory tires on my wife’s Compass and the difference is incredible. These tires are extremely quiet and the ride is unbelievably smooth compared to the older tires. We also just purchased a 2004 Nissan Quest and put the same tires on it. Same results. These tires are really nice.

  • Submitted by eric on December 28, 2013

    Love these tires. The fuel improvement is the best feature!

  • Submitted by Mike on February 6, 2014

    By far, the best All Season tire I have ever purchased! And the fuel economy on my Dodge Stratus increased by about 1.5 miles per gallon on average. Really impressed with the snow traction with all of the snow storms!!! Would recommend! Mike B

  • Submitted by Scott on February 8, 2014

    I have had the Ecopias on my Acura MDX for 10,000 miles and they have seen summer and winter driving. I love these tires, because I was looking a tire that was smooth, quiet, and had good wet and snow traction. These tires are not high performance tires, but they do corner well in regular traffic and at highway speed. The snow traction in my opinion is excellent for an all season touring tire.

  • Submitted by Jim on February 17, 2014

    A very good tire, not sure about the claimed mileage gains yet, but have yet to take on highway trip in good weather. The tire rides smooth, but I don’t rate cornering power as all that great, as well as steering response. But I would probably buy again.

  • Submitted by Jason on February 26, 2014

    These tires are superb quality. I have gotten a lot of hard mileage with these tires. I am planning on purchasing them again. I saved gas with them, handles the road great, low road noise, and just a great tire.

  • Submitted by Leslie on March 6, 2014

    I bought these for our 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe and I am buying a set for our 2009 Hyundai Sonata. They are quiet, perform well in wet or dry roads, and have great traction on snow. Will get on all my vehicles!

    Noticed right off these tires have better traction and steering response. The price was quite reasonable also.

    Quiet ride, good feel of road. Put a set on my ’09 Camry so I knew what a good tire this is. In the Florida summer rains, the car handles well and wears well.

    Love these tires! My fuel economy has never been better!!!!

    Best tires.
    Great price.
    Good buy!

  • Submitted by Howard on October 5, 2014

    Impressed with the quiet ride and wet weather handling. Put in nitro when purchased and the tires have lasted over 50K miles.

  • Submitted by Mira on October 28, 2014

    I can’t answer the Snow Traction, as I didn’t drive yet on the snow.

  • Submitted by R on December 3, 2014

    Did not feel confident in this tire on very wet surfaces and snow. Had experienced some slipping instances in conditions where it should not have been slipping. Wore out faster than other tires I have had even though more costly (and I am good about maintaining tire air pressure and alignment). Would not buy these again.

  • Submitted by Carole on December 4, 2014

    I love these tires. They have been excellent in the snow that I have driven in so far. I would buy these again.

  • Submitted by Jeff on December 11, 2014

    I purchased these tires, but I was considering these or Michelins. I wish I opted for the Michelins…I’ve had these tires for >25K miles and have not been satisfied. I’ve rotated every 5K miles, had 2 alignments and always monitor the inflation. Despite this, these tires have edge wear issues with noticeable wear after just 15K miles. This was confirmed (unsolicited) by other tire stores when I inquired if they would recommend Ecopia’s. Stick with Michelins, even though they may be more expensive…

  • Submitted by Phil on January 10, 2015

    I bought these tires about a year ago and after 8,000 miles they look like new, have a smooth ride and are quiet. They are on a 2001 Lexus ES300 and are so much better than the Cooper tires I replaced. I also have this tire on a 2009 Toyota Camry XLE and have had the same results. I feel I really bought a winner with this Bridgestone Series of tires. I expect to get the mileage out of these tires. If you are looking for a quality tire without paying a fortune, I recommend you try this tire.

  • Submitted by DON on January 19, 2015

    So far so good.
    MPG increased.
    Waiting to see how mileage wear is.

  • Submitted by Colleen on March 1, 2015

    So far they are great.

  • Submitted by Jim on March 11, 2015

    Have had these for over one year, probably won’t buy again…steering response is really mushy, don’t feel tires grip as you go through a roundabout, or on highway…mileage gains are virtually zero over the Contis I had before these. Ride OK on highway…I will say that snow traction has been great, much better than expected!!!

  • Submitted by Josh on March 3, 2016

    Not the worst tire I have ever had, you can clearly tell this tire is designed for people in the united states and not northern canadian weather. Was a cheap option at the time of purchase, highly doubt I would ever buy them again.
