half worn at 13000k's

published

I have these tyres on a front wheel drive car. have done 13,000 ks in two and a bit years and they are half worn. I have these rotated and balanced at every service. I also have them inflated at recommended tyre pressure so not sure why they are performing poorly. Toyota advised this is "normal and acceptable".

Decent.

published

Replaced all 4 tyres on my ford falcon due to general wear with these. I have found them to be reliable so far after with no traction loss even in wet conditions.. I would recommend keeping a close eye on the pressure however as I find they regularly need to be topped up with air.

Poor longevity and mediocre wet weather performance

published

I have a Mitsubishi Magna (front wheel drive) and replaced the front tyres which were Yokohama A-Drives 40,000km ago. The other two tyres are the remaining A-Drives which have been on the car for around 80,000km. The tread wear is near identical and the Turanza has a tear in the sidewall as mentioned by another user. I will say that in their short life they have performed well in the dry but their wet performance is nothing close to Michelins of similar price.

Excellent tyre

published

The tyres on my car have been awesome tyres.
Though wet or dry conditions the tyres have worn great on the car and have gone the distance as well.
They are also fuel saving as well, when I have to stop suddenly they preform really good
I will be getting the same tyres next time for sure

Best tyre you can find

published

I don't know why people are complaining about the noise. Of course with the more gripped tread they won't be silent but keep in mind that these are safety and performance tyres. They're no louder than any other tyre ive used (about 20) but ive driven about 20,000ks on them and they've worked a treat. Wet handling is phenomenal - feels like your driving in the dry. dry handling is even better. I recently had to make an evasive manuever and I can easily say without these tyres I would have been in the grille of a semi. If you can sacrifice dead silence over safety than these are the best you can get for its price range.

These tyres generate a lot of road noise and as such will be changing these over to another leading brand that have a very low travel noise.
As a driver that spends a lot of time on highways and freeways road noise from tyres can be distracting as such the earlier that I ca afford to remove these the better. You certainly get what you pay for discounted tyres or sales promotion are not always a great deal. They might provide long mileage or KMs but road noise is the issue.

These tyres are terrible. Road noise is almost unbearable. I have to turn the music on to dampen the noise. These tyres were fitted to brand new 2013 Toyota Aurion. I would never recommend them. Better to have quiet tyres than long lasting tyres. I have had this problem since the first service at 15,000km. These tyres have passed 65,000km. They will last another 20,000km but km distance is not what I am after. I am after tyres that are quiet on the road.

good tyres, now unavailable new

published

I had these for a good 60000 kms + and on low tread they still had great grip and locked up once when i really tested them. They are slightly slippery in wet but excel in dry and in the mountains and are quiet on the way. I went for eco tyres this time but they were a good buy and did the job well. I found since buying my new 215 60 16 yokes they were smoother ride but not as good covering quickly but the new ones hold the road better, except when i execrate too fast I've had one slip but did not slide.

Great tyres, now hard to find

Mine have lasted over 60,000 kms and still have grip. Good handling, and good on highway. Having trouble finding a replacement. Would definitely replace with these if i can find them.

Good Tyre

published

Had four of those with 205/65 R15 on my 2001 Camry. They lasted pretty well with 60000KM. I reckon i could have another 10, 000 with my leisurely drive. The grip of the tyre is good on both wet and dry (better on the dry), always felt confident with them. The feeling is quite progressive.
Value for money. Decent grip and progressive feel.
There are quieter newer tyres on the market namely the Bridgestone T001. Not a Low Rolling Resistance Tyre. Could last longer.

Would not buy again

published

I had these fitted to a Falcon AUIII sedan 215/60-16
Very noisy more than the OEM NCT 5 Goodyear
Handling was ok, dry drip was ok, wet drip was marginal.
I only got 40000 km where the original Goodyear NCT 5 got 70000km
Price was similar to other equivalent brands.
They look narrow on the rims compared to original.
I don't think they work on the Falcon and would not recommend on this vehicle

Did not last

Excellent high performance tyres that provide security grip on the road, smoothness and quietness,excellent in hot or rainy weather with excellent pumping of water for maximum grip and safety
look and width, but more importantly the smooth quiet rides and the high performance grip in any weather, fantastic, have had Michelin's and Pirelli's on other cars, and the Brigestone E30 ZX 18" were on my 7 series BMW as OE equipment, and they perform better than any other tyre I have driven on, fantastic!!!

I bought a Mazda 3 MZR-CD 2.0TD in OCT 2007 and I have just clocked up 60,000Kms in Jan 2010. These tires were stock that came with the car. Still got about 1-2mm of tread left until the wear mark. Could do another 10,000kms but I've had to put a puncture repair kit on one of the tires as I got a puncture from something. Going to get the ER300 from Bob Janes to replace as the ER300 this is a better quality tire. 205/55/R16 $184
Quiet Ride, Long life and good wet weather grip.
Nothing really just need to buy some new tires.


Terrible

published

The tyres were on the car,Mazda 6 wagon, from new. havent lasted at all. Tyre pressures and wheel alignment looked after and they did not last. Will try a different brand.

25000 km and they are worn out.

Don't know how you were driving them.

A good quality tyres which gives great comfort as well as stability but lacks performance in the wet conditions. A great buy for the average driver who are seeking a bit of performance.
Real quiet and good on dry conditions.
Not so good on wet condition as advertised.

Very good tyres that I have had on two of my classics for over 3 years which I will admit don't get driven everyday but when they are used (for weddings) these tyres really work in all weather conditions without producing any noise. Reliability is fantastic, wearing square and evenly (had wheel alignment done when first fitted) and have achieved over 50K on one set (still have 40% tread left) and 35K on the other set. No complaints at all - will buy again :-)
Quiet ride, great grip, long life and look good on my classic australian muscle cars using 225/60 15.

Very good tyres. I bought my commodore used with those tyres fitted on already (With about 70%) and I did around 50,000kms on top!! I still have them on, (With barely any tread left) and they produce No noise whatsoever, and I cant believe I can still drive in the wet without my car slipping! I consider myself to be an agressive driver, and I reckon these tyres can easily do 70,000kms
Extreme long mileage with these tyres. Quiet, Good on Wet and Dry.
A bit pricey, I am opting for a cheaper brand due to financial restrictions

Questions & Answers

Hello
what is the meaning of " ER " on your tires?

3 answers
RedM
RedM

I don't think ER has any particular meaning. ER30 just distingishes this type of Tyre from others in the Bridgestone range. The ER30 is probably one of best tyres I have owned but I also think some tyres may suit some cars better than others. I had them on a small suv- a 2005 Mitsubishi Outlander. Hope this helps.

Ford Lover

As RedM suggests, ER is nothing more than an identifier used by Bridgestone to denote a particular style/shape/mould of tyre which is designed to suit a certain range of vehicles. If you really had to know, Bridgestone would be able to provide a definitive answer.
As I said in an earlier post, the 'Turanza' is a badly-under-performing tyre in wet conditions. Particularly on my Ford AU sedan. The grip has however, improved with age.

I think its just a model number and doesn't mean much. I had 215/60-16 on an AU, I won't buy these tyres again, poor grip in the wet, noisy and only got 40,000 km.

The new Bridgestone Turanza ER30 is now made in Indonesia (after the Australian factory was closed) and is available in K-Mart Tyre and auto stores. I bought a new set of four "Bridgestone Serenity Plus", three months ago to replace my previous tyres, because these range of tyres are made from much newer technology and are better for all round driving. Also has deeper tread depth. Check them out and decide for yourself.
