Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus RFT
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- All weather traction
- Enhanced controllability
- Run flat tire model
- Fuel efficient performance
The Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus RFT is a touring all season run flat tire manufactured for passenger vehicles.
The tire promotes great all weather traction. Its special all season tire compound and symmetric tread design increase the dry, wet and winter weather road gripping ability. The tread elements, with the higher number of sipes, firmly grips the road surface in all conditions, while the tire compound keeps its flexible traction throughout the year. The treads circumferential grooves prevent hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from below the tires footprint. The improved traction and hydroplaning resistance ensure a secure year round performance.
The model was manufactured with the run flat technology. Its stronger internal structure is capable of withstanding the weight of the vehicle and its passengers for a limited period after air pressure loss. The tire can be driven on after air pressure loss for 50 miles up to the speed of 50 mph. In this manner, the driver will not be stranded on the side of the road after a puncture, rather they can drive to a near location to change or fix the tire. Run flat tires are manufactured for vehicles without space for a spare tire. They cannot be mixed with regular tires, as their reinforced structure makes their construction heavier.
The tire is easily controlled. The optimized tread design improves the tires road contact in all weather. The better road contact upgrades the steering responsiveness and driving stability greatly. In other words, the steering becomes faster and more precise in its response to the drivers commands, while the structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting it. The cornering capability is boosted with the shoulder tread blocks that increase the number of biting edges that grip the road. The guaranteed safer controllability and maneuvering ability ensures first-rate driving safety.
The Ecopia H/L 422 Plus RFT was manufactured with a tire compound that lowers the tires rolling resistance. The rolling resistance is the force affecting the model that determines the amount of energy the vehicle needs to keep the tires in motion. The reduced rolling resistance, in turn, decreases the vehicles fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, making the tire more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly. The reduced rolling resistance also manages to slow the tread wear rate down. This, along with the prevention of irregular tread wear formations and the evenly distributed driving pressure, significantly lengthens the tread life and the tires usability.
