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

I bought Ford Ecosport Titatnium + on Feb 2018 after paying 12.7 lacs. The front Ecop Bridgestone R17 tyre got burst in just 3 months and the rim also got bungled. After that I had to replace 4 tyres in just 18 months. Each tyre costs around Rs10,000. I spent around 40,000 just for buying new tyres till now. I am completely fed with this now. A new tyre worth Rs 10,000 for every 6000-7000 kilometres for a car priced around 13 lakhs. How will you match and justify this. Absolutely unacceptable.

I have already raised a complaint with Ford company requesting a permanent solution to this.

Sir, I had bought ford ecosport 1.5l titanium AT at the launch of facelift model 2 years ago. I had driven 28000 kms. Yesterday on the way to thirukoviloor from Dharmapuri, tamilnadu, both left-side front and rear tyres burst causing mental agony as i didn't expect this from ecosport vehicle, The Dealer in my case is not friendly and the tyres had to be purchased again. This tyre is not fit for village roads. Dr. V. Shanmugam. Dharmapuri.

I had purchased ecosport signature in July 18. Had drove the car for 38 k km and saw bulge n my Bridgestone ecopia 205/50 R17 tyres.

Though I have ran good distance but good tyres run for at least 60 k km without any problem. Have faced Tyre issues with my other cars.

Understand after reading all the complaints here that this is general issue with these tyres due to size and width which is not suitable for Indian roads

Can someone advise which Tyre I should now use with this car.

MRF showrrom is suggesting me to replace all tyres with 205/ 65 17 inch tyres and giving me guarantee for 10 years.

Pls advise if I can change height an diameter of the Tyre under 17inch and will dat work and if that will.effevt my fuel efficiency

I am owner of Ford EcoSport vizag ( Viskhapatam) I purchased the car Ford EcoSport on 31st Jul 2019 and my car tyre 205 / 50 R 17 get cut after 2500 km believe it is companies mistake to install such a low profile tires and company should do something about it. they should change all the rims to 16 inch or do something else because I believe it is cheating with the customer who bought all these cars with 17 inch tyres. Now Ford EcoSport workshop send the mail to tyre manufacturer and he simply said this now my mistake because tyre cut by any object.
