DUELER H/L 422 ECOPIA

Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season

Overall Rating (8.4)


The Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia is one of Bridgestone's ecologically oriented Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tires developed for the drivers of small- and medium-sized crossover and sport utility vehicles looking to combine year-round traction, handling and comfort with reduced environmental impact. Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia tires are designed to enhance vehicle fuel economy by reducing tire rolling resistance* along with the vehicle's carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions while delivering year-round all-season traction, even in light snow.

The Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia uses an all-season tread compound featuring Bridgestone's unique NanoPro-Tech (Nanostructure-Oriented Properties Control Technology) to reduce rolling resistance and energy loss while maintaining dry, wet and wintertime traction.

This compound is molded into a symmetric tread design that combines notched shoulders and intermediate ribs with independent center blocks for dry road tracking and traction. Four circumferential grooves are designed to help water flow from under the footprint to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction while notches and sipes increase the edges that bite into light snow. The tire sidewalls feature Bridgestone's Fuel Saver compound to further increase efficiency.

The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon on top of a polyester carcass to blend ride comfort and durability.

Comments Very good tire. We've had a lot of snow and freezing rain and I've had no traction problems what so ever. The tires are very quiet and make an excellent touring tire.

Comments I haven't driven enough miles on this tire to accurately rate it but I bought them to replace Michelins I had on my car. The Bridgestones are much quieter

Comments 47,193 miles on the tires and there is about 2-3 mm of tread remaining before the tires reach the tread ware indicator. These tires had a 65K mile warranty therefore I would say that the tires have met the tread wear expectation. Only complaint is high price and at current tread depth, tire has lost much of its wet traction.
