Never Buy Ford Eco Sport Titanium+ AT with Bridgestone Ecopia or 17" tyres
I am owner of Ford Eco Sport Titanium+ AT , Car come with Bridgestote Tyre 205/50 R17 .
2 Tyre has damaged after 6000 Kms Drive only .
After that i visit ford showroom , they refer my complain - Bridgestone , After al lot of complian and mail they take about 7 days for appointment for tyre Infection . i visited there , find upprofeesional pathentick service as footpathshop . he is mnc company for name only . Clint respect, time ,Money nothing for Bridgestote . report provide its not in guaranteed

Bridgestone Ecopia or 17" tyres simply cannot handle Indian roads.

Wonder where does the responsibility start for Ford or Bridgestone.
This could be quite damaging to their reputation

Hello,

Thanks for update
Yes - some of the owners reportedly seems facing the issue
Keeping thread open for other owners - if they have also faced problem in 17 Inch Low Profile Tyres in Ford Ecosport

However, worst part is the Bridgestone experience you referred, suggest to write to Ford India Management and Bridgestone India addressing the customer centric issue.

Hello,
I am an EcoSport Tdci Titanium + owner. My car has run only 8000 km so far. Last week while driving down on Bengaluru - Salem highway my side walls of Bridgestone ecopia 205/50 R17 suffered a tear. If was driving around 90 km/hr and was somehow able to steer the car to safety.
Please let me know if Bridgestone or Ford India has taken any commitments on this issue as I have seen similar issues with lots of EcoSport titanium owners.

Regards,
Kiran

I have also bought ecosport Titanium + on dtd 02.06.2018
But Car come 17 rim with Bridgestote Tyre 205/50 R17 .
3Tyre has damaged after 9700 Kms Drive only then visit at show room service manager said u have not maintain air pressure properly etc
But i say will go consumer foram
Then he replacement tyres only
But it is rim size 17 inch problem due to tyre slim and rim damaged tyres
So ford action on this matter and replace all 2018 titanium plus model 17 inch rim into previous model 16 inch

My Ecosport Titanium S TDCi Rear Tyre got damaged and replaced with new Tyre by Ford Authorised service Center for Rs.9000/- No guarantee for these Bridgestone tyres and such pathetic quality if tyres Ford is using for its Full Option Ecosport models. So sad to report this and felt ditched by Ford :(

facing same issue... Bridgestone wants to inspect the tyre before taking any decision, Ford forwarded my complain to Bridgestone. Doesn't look promising for any replacement. will keep you'll informed.
