If you have a Chase Rewards card, you can get an extra 5% off and save 15 more dollars. The Bridgestone Ecopias are $130 less than the Michelin Defenders some people use. Their website says "Ecopia low rolling resistance tires are engineered to make any car more fuel efficient."

Bridgestone - Ecopia EP422 PLUS

Thanks for the heads up, this looks like a good deal!

What Chase Rewards card are you referring to?

The 2012 tire size, on the same rim as the 2010-2011 was 185/60 R15 84H

The size in 2010 was 175/65 R15 84H

The wider tire makes a big difference in how the vehicle feels and handles. The first couple of years on the oem tires were horrible.

I find that some tire places will argue about using a different size than their computer shows. Just tell them it's a 2012.

Unavailable in 185/60R15 around Denver or for ordering on website. Bummer. Hitting Discount Tire today to pay full retail and be done with it. The wifie wants to drive her "new" car!

Just put on a set of the Ecopias three days ago. 175/65-15 as per original for the 2010. The usual drivers of the car (not me) are happy with them. We'll see how they perform long term. We use dedicated snow tires in winter.
