Poor quality tyres and pathetic customer service

published

I bought a brand new Mazda CX9 with 20 inch company fitted Bridgestone Ecopia tyres.
but just after 7000Kms of normal driving one of the tyres developed a big bubble on the outer side of the front tyre. I checked with my dealer who referred me to a local tyre shop. They confirmed that there is no damage to the tyre from outside but looks like the internal lining of the tyre has ruptured as a manufacturing defect.

I spoke to Bridgestone customer service who advised me that this defect is not covered under warranty and tyre need to replaced on customer expense.

I have been driving past 20 years and never had Bridgestone tyres before, this is first time I used it and fall into the poor quality trap.

NEVER AGAIN

Purchased in March 2019.

Good price

published

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

published

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

published

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

published

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.

published

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

published

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

published

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

published

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

published

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.

published

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.

What is the load rating of Ecopia H/T EP850 tyres?

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.
