Bridgestone Ecopia EP 850


I've been using these tyres for the past 4 years + on my 2008 4WD Daulis. Towing caravan from QLD to WA. On my 2nd set getting about 45000 km. Super grip in wet and dry. Low noise and never had a flat or any tyre problems in the past 4 years +.

Purchased in February 2015 at Ocean tyres Gladstone.

Good price


St Albans car care matched a competitors price, well done! After shopping around I got the best deal here at this store. They were fitted a few days later and I had no problems. Since I have to use fifty words or more in this review I will now write down some rubbish to fill it in.

Tyres worn out very fast and high fuel efficient.


I need this Bridgestone eco 850 replacement in just 18000 kms in 2 years. Never felt confident in wet conditions and high slopes. Fuel economy is not good as well. Bought it for better fuel economy as mentioned when I bought them all four. Not good to spend money again to get new tyres.

Great in dirt and sand and road good value


Not sure on durably I’ve only had them for 8 weeks. I do lots of 4x4 with the family and can honestly say they complement my hilux. Places I didn’t dare go I go now beach,dirt and bitumen. They are the best tyres I’ve had on my 4x4. Best money for value. That good some of family have them put on and they are very happy also.

Good solid performer


These tyres came fitted to a jeep i purchased in july and i have now travelled nearly 10000 on them in two months including bitumen , dirt , river sand and rocks and wet and muddy grass and have performed very well in all conditions with no punctures or variation in pressure. They seem reasonably quiet on the open road and feel sure footed in the wet and are well matched to the car for a readily available mid priced tyre. I would buy them again.

Comfortable and Quiet


First thing I noticed was how quiet these tyres are, softer than the Dunlop grand trek I had before but the ride is much smoother and soaks up bumps and rough roads much better. Grip is excellent especially in the wet ABS does not work as hard when braking suddenly, cornering is very good great reassuring grip again softer than the Dunlops but that is the trade off for comfort. Love these tyres it has changed the feel of the vehicle to comfort and luxury.

Towing with ecopia.


Didn't get many mileage out of these tyres while towing 16.5 ft caravan.Tried different air PSI in them but only got no more than about 22.000 klms before replacing.Maybe fault in manufacturing of tyres.As we traveled aroud oz spoke ro different tyre places and stores other than the usual stories couldn't shed much light on why they worned out so quickly.One outlet said they were maybe retreads passed of as new .

Good tyre for Xtrail


Used these tyres for 3+years on my Nissan Xtrail, 90% highway driving
I got 75k out of them, but i mistakenly only rotated them once at 60k.
Tyres were quiet and I didn't have problems with them.
Didn't have much of an impact on fuel economy.
Bought on 3 for 4 sale.

Poor fuel economy. Poor longevity


Fuel consumption has gone up 15%. Rear tyres now need replacing after only 50 000km. Rubbish and won't touch any Bridgestone tyres again. Previous tyres were Dunlop and were much better quality. You get what you pay for as always. Huge disappointment and waste of money, STAY WELL AWAY I say.

Lives up to Expectatons


After researching tyre options decided to try the Ecopia. 3 months later I'm happy with the choice. Good all round grip, low road noise and noticeable ride improvement. Slightly better than previous average fuel usage so less rolling resistance claim seems accurate. Overall a good tyre so looking forward to many K's of comfy & safe travel.

87,000 and still plenty left


On a 2011 Kluger AWD. Initially very quiet, but have become a bit noisy later in life due to slightly irregular wear from wheel alignment issue. I didn't think they'd last this long, as they appeared to wear quickly to begin with.
This is my wife's car and she corners quite hard most of the time.
Got 68,000kms out of the original Dunlops, so 87k+ is fantastic for these tyres.
Bought on sale 4 for 3 deal.

These tyre's are dangerous.


Just bought my girlfriend a used corolla levin hatch sporty and the previous owner put these tyres on the back.
Was driving down a 110 highway in Sydney during summer and the rear left tyre exploded and nearly had an accident due to handling but luckily no one was hurt.

It's complete rubbish. You pay cheap you expect something crap.

Do some research on the tyres first when you're about to buy or have bought a car already before you end up being sorry.

high expectations... much disappointment


Bought a set of 4 of these for my wifes Kluger. The choice was based on the tyre shops recommendation... i should have known better. Fuel economy has been no better (worse if anything), traction in the wet particularly has been worse than the original factory tyres, but worst of all they have worn terribly. Im now shopping for a new set with these just about down the wear indicators after only 30000kms. We got 60k out of the original tyres. I wont be buying ecopias again...

Absolutely Useless For Towing


Had Dueller HT'S which lasted for 63,000K. Approx. 30% towing. Replaced with Ecopia HTEP850 with the rears lasting under 20,000kms with 50% towing. Fronts approximately half worn. Rotated as per suppliers instructions. Bridgestone useless, but K Mart helped with half cost of new Duellers. Ecopias still recommended on Bridgestone website for 4x4. Towing single axle caravan, weight approximately 1500kilo. Don't buy if towing!!! Very disappointed with Bridgestone's attitude, they will not get any of my business again.

Questions & Answers



What is the load rating of Ecopia H/T EP850 tyres?
What is the maximum recommended tyre pressure for towing caravan?

1 answer

Hello! To be honest I have no idea, however Bridgestone replaced my set with new Duellers as the load rating for Explorer was inadequate. I was happy with Bridgestone response. I would be careful about choosing Ecopia SUV tyres for heavy vehicles.
