Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus (Our Review)
Designed for drivers of sedans, minivans, and SUVs, the Ecopia H/L 422 Plus offers superb size coverage, long-lasting tread life, all-new fitments, and an excellent warranty policy.
The tire promotes lower fuel consumption by reducing rolling resistance and a comfortable riding experience that’s accentuated by confident handling and reliable year-round traction.
The Ecopia 422 Plus is equipped with advanced NanoPro technology, which helps reduce energy loss and rolling resistance so that fuel economy is improved. It does so without any sort of compromise on dry or winter traction.
The tread flaunts a symmetric tread pattern that’s coupled with notched shoulder blocks, independent center blocks, and intermediate ribs to ensure optimal traction and stability on dry terrain. The tire is also designed in such a way that road noise is minimized significantly.
There are four circumferential grooves that help the tire navigate wet terrain without the risk of hydroplaning. Further, there are sipes and notches that grant the tire numerous biting edges for improved winter traction. The tire performs adequately in light snow, but when it comes to deep snow and ice, it’s not the most efficient.

- Excellent tread life and tread life warranty
- Super reliable traction and grip on dry terrain
- Designed to reduce fuel efficiently
