Top Bridgestone Ecopia EP25 Review

Given 45% while driving a Subaru Legacy (215/45 R17 R) on mostly country roads for 1,000 average miles
I have found these tyres extremely dangerous in the wet. The slightest bit of wet on a smooth bit of tarcel - the car planed. Going over a slight bump whilst turning even in dry conditions - the rear tyres struggle to renew grip and give the sensation of the rear of the car almost giving a little side ways jump. I am going in to get rid of these dangerous tyres today. Nearly 2 accidents in one journey yesterday with planing (first day driving in the wet with them). Tyre pressures have been checked and were fine.

Given 73% while driving a Peugeot 208 1.5 BlueHDi (185/65 R15 T) on mostly motorways for 10,000 spirited miles
These tyres are OEM on the car, with Treadwear 200 Temperature B Traction B
and EU labelling C for economy, B for wet braking and 70db.

Taking into account that the tire is an enviromentally friendly tire and not a sports one, here is what I think:

Dry braking is really good with no surprises whatsoever. I had an emergency braking because of a wild hog crossing the road and the tire outperformed the traction of the tarmac and the weather conditions, meaning you could tell it could have decelerated more without losing grip had the asphalt been completely dry and more rough.

Handling is also very good, despite the softness of the tire. This softness is present only in cornering at a high speed, so for normal driving and everyday use the tires are perfectly fine.

Feedback is also very good, you get on the wheel what you see on the road, so happy there, too.

On wet grip, I disagree with other people claiming the tire sucks. Yeah, it sucks if you think you're riding on a UHP tire. Keep in mind it's not a performance tire, with a Traction B rating, so prudence and reservation are mandatory on wet public roads where indifference, incompetence, arrogance and pure stupidity are also present.
Having said that, I think the Ecopia EP25 holds no surprises for the knowledgeable driver. Driving on the wet 20-30km/h less than on dry roads will give you the same results as in the dry.

Wet braking is mediocre at best at lower speeds (up to 80km/h) with the ABS engaging a bit more than I expected. This is the first reason I will not choose them again or recommend them, as well as the wear rate.

On the other hand, straight aqua is surprisingly good, even at 2cm of water, cutting through water ponds easily.

Wear is fast for these tyres. In 15.000km of 95% motorway use they have got down to 6,1mm of tread, which is a bad result for me, being an old Michelin user. In comparison, Michelin Energy Saver+ started at 7,2mm losing 0,5mm of tread every 10.000km on the same conditions (mind you, the Michelins are Treadwear 400).

Noise is annoying. Only on newly-paved surfaces will there be silence in the cabin; otherwise, get ready for a continuous roar or get a pair of ear-plugs.

All in all, I would choose my Michelin Saver+ over the Ecopia25 time and again, simply because they are better.

Given 43% while driving a Mazda 2 SP (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 8,495 average miles
Absolutely useless. Only lasted 8,495 miles compared with previous Dunlop's 40,600. Soft as butter

Are cheap winter tyres safe, or a false economy? Watch this video to find out!
Given 44% while driving a Peugeot 208 1.2VTi (185/65 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 3,300 average miles
I have covered 3300 miles on these tyres so far. The dry grip is quite good and the wear, so far is also good, used about 1.5mm. The ride is comfortable, but a little noisy at speed. The wet grip however is appalling and can be quite dangerous. For this reason I will not be purchasing them again.

Given 84% while driving a Peugeot 208 XY 1.6 HDI (185/65 R15 T) on mostly country roads for 40,000 easy going miles
Standard tyre with the car (Peugeot 208 1.6 HDI) and can't complain. They were not too loud, good fuel economy and hard wearing. Roughly 20-25000 miles on a set though I was changing with winter tyres for half the year so hard to estimate. I've used these tyres in cold temperatures and they seem to grip like normal though in the wet (incl. summer) you do feel a slight difference in grip, not much though. Good tyre all round.

Given 41% while driving a Toyota Verso S (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 15,000 average miles
I had to put these on a Verso S because the official Dunlop 2030 was not available at the time (!) - it is an unusual size. They have been OK but a bit noisy, no real problems, till the fronts wore down to between 3 and 4 mm and the wet grip evaporated, after 15000 miles. I normally change when the tread is down to 3mm, but I replaced the fronts with Yokohamas after a worrying experience on a wet hill. The reduction in road noise was immediately noticeable, especially on better surfaces. I wouldn't buy them again because there seem to be better alternatives. Of course tyres do vary from lot to lot and according to your usage, so I should emphasise this is a personal opinion and not the result of scientific testing.
