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

Faced the same issue where the right front tyre was torn. It is the same R17 Bridgestone Ecopia 205/50.

I guess we have to go with Michelin r17 tyre which would cost somewhere between 9-10k

Why you all still trust fFord?

Just like GM, it may leave India very soon.

Trust only big names like maruti honda Tata etc.

I bought the April, 2018 T+ model. Car did 6k kms and two tyres both on the front left have been damaged. Ford was gracious enough to help me with the replacements for both of them but I am now worried using the low profile Ecopia tyres. I am not sure when the other 3 older tyres will run into the same issue.

I also bought Ford Ecosport Titanium plus Diesel, Purchased in May 2018
Suffered two tyre bursts even when travelling at very low speed. The Ford service has replaced all 5 tyres with new Ecopia 205/50 R17 tyres. Will see how they perform. Had an i10 for a decade and never faced any such problems. Ford has now removed these tyres/wheels on the 2019 models but should replace on earlier models as well

I have also suffered from tyre issue
- At 6500 Km - run in city only, I found Front left tyre bulging, and damage to Rear left tyre ( one tyre replaced by new by service centre and sanother tyre replaced with spare wheel)
inmy first out station travel to for 900 Km more (total car travelled on this date= 7600 Km), Both Left Tyres burst during runof car at 40-50 KM/Hr. vey much inconveniences suffered by me, car wax towed to nearby service centre - wherd both Left tyres we’re replaced.
Not suitable for Indian roads and there is potential danger while travelling in this car due to its defective, low profile tyres

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 :(

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

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

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.
