Top Bridgestone Ecopia EP200 Review

Given 31% while driving a Toyota Innova (205/65 R15) on mostly town for 14,000 average miles
It's the worst tyres I've ever used in my 25 years of driving.

Dry grip and braking is just adequate. ABS kicks in every time under moderately heavy braking indicating the tyres are losing grip.

In the wet, exercise extreme caution. The tyres break away very early in cornering and under braking.

What's worse than the appalling performance is it's only left with 3mm tread depth after just 14000miles (23000Km). My previous sets of Michelin and Continentals covered 50000km before needing replacement.

It's advertised as a eco/green tyre with low rolling resistance and fuel savings but I've experienced zero change in fuel consumption.

These tyres do not give much feedback and the steering just feels numb.

The only positive attributes I can give to these tyres is that it's relatively quiet and rides comfortably but nothing exceptional compared to my previous sets of Continentals and Michelin.

Stay away from these tyres if you value you life and those of your family.

Given 69% while driving a Audi A5 2.0 TDi (2017) (225/45 R17 V) on mostly motorways for 32,000 spirited miles
Was a good tyre, but need to replace them. And the replacement value is insane on this tyre. Yet a lower profile is half the price. Further more, the reviews are terrible, and i have pirelli at Heart. that is even cheaper than the lower profile (45's).

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 71% while driving a Toyota Altis (195/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 38,500 spirited miles
I had these Bridgestone Ecopia EP200 (195/65/R15) tyres fitted at the 100,000 km mark and my ODO now shows 162,000 km on the clock which means I have been using these tyres for over 62,000 km (38,500 miles). I am driving an automatic gearbox Toyota Corolla Altis, mainly in the city and on surrounding motorways (urban driving) with a fair share of country roads and highways as well. I would say that I drive in the city and on surrounding motorways 80 % of the time, however, the actual mileage of the tyres is actually made of 50 % city and 50 % country highways and roads.
I would say that my driving style is pretty "spirited" as I usually like to launch from standstill and red lights, doing redline accelerations and I sometimes have to brake pretty firmly...

So as far as wear is concerned, I m giving these tyres 100 % as even after over 60,000 km driven in a sporty manner, they are still not completely worn and even though I will be changing them sometime in the next 2-3,000 km, they could very easily last at least 10-15,000 km more.

Now as far as handling and grip are concerned it s another story. Dry grip imho is pretty good, I have never ever felt the car slipping or somehow escaping my control even when driving in curves at 180 kph and this, despite my all-time spirited driving style. So dry grip and handling is good. Wet grip is another story though, when the tyres were brand new wet grip was a-ok, it was not fabulous, but ok, but as the tyres were approaching their end of life, wet grip became worse and degraded more and more to the point that I am actually scared to drive on wet, slippery roads now, I dont feel safe.

As far as comfort is concerned these tyres are ok, pretty quiet but thats about it.

Would buy again? Probably not, I will be buying better, high-end tyres when I replace them.

Given 81% while driving a Chevrolet optra (195/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 50,000 average miles
These tyres with me for 3years, they still perform very well.
Useage: for travelling to work daily & weekend touring around
Road Condition: Highway(40%) , City(50%) & Country road (10%)
Driving Style: easy driving, usually travel at speed of 70-120km/h
My previous set of tyres are Turanza AR10.
The EP200 performs like Turanza AR10, plus
(1) lower rolling resistance, my car can roll further & accelerate easier
(2) Quiet & comfortable
(3) Use lesser fuel, in my case, fuel efficiency improved by 4%
I like EP200 very much.

Given 70% while driving a Honda Civic 1.8 (195/55 R15 R) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Hmm, I seem to have quite a different opinion from others reporting here. These replaced a set of (well-regarded) Kumho KU31 tyres 6,000 miles ago and first impressions are good. Steering feels much more responsive, and when corners are tackled at mid-speeds and aggressiveness, the front end tracking now feels literally "on rails" with minimal slip, particularly in the dry. Wet grip and hydroplaning resistance appear average to me. Rolling resistance is noticeably lower - the car coasts appreciably further. The car is also easier to manually push around when I have to shuffle it in my small, flat, concrete parking area. On smooth roads, the tyres are quiet, but coarse surfaces are quite a different story and I would rate them below average noise-wise on these surfaces. I normally get around 16,000-24,000 miles of mixed driving from my tyres (front-to-backed once, mid-life) and I expect (from the wear at 6,000 miles) these to be worn by the lower end of that range. Another area where my opinion is different from most is in ride. I find the EP200's quite a bit harsher at town speeds than my (non-Eco) 3 previous sets of tyres, and interestingly, running them a little underinflated (or overinflated) doesn't change the harshness. I'm wondering if the stiffer low-rolling resistance sidewalls are deflecting less thereby supporting more of the car's weight, reducing the influence of tyre pressure, compared to a non-Eco tyre. One final note, these tyres have an outer and inner "side" (the sidewalls are different apparently), but are considered non-directional tread-wise.
