What an improvement they've made to the car
We've just upgraded the misses car to these from a lower end tyre that were installed on the car by previous owner. The improvement is hard to believe. My wife, who normally couldn't care less about such topics has praised them without prompt. Sometimes, you get what you pay for.
While their life and durability will take more time to assess, I can say that handling, ride, noise and overall feel of the car has been positively transformed. Compliments the suspension very nicely. I have little concern over their wet performance either, if other r...eviews keep true. I honestly had never liked driving this car, a 2013 Impreza, until this week when the tyres got swapped to Serenitys. We live in Tasmania with rough and twisty roads. Even with alignment well set, the previous tyres made the car a bit of a chore to drive. I can honestly say it is a pleasure to pilot now and I wish we'd put the tyres on when we first bought the car.

Good improvement+value for money
Excellent stability and traction on dry and wet. Nice noise reduction.Very sure in cornering. Review is after 1000 km. No rewards offered by Bridgestone, it was 3+1 deal.Will buy again.
I needed a quiet tyre.
Great grip in all conditions. I never knew there was a “quiet tyre” but you can notice the difference. Very happy. Would highly recommend to anyone, even all the disbelievers.

Not very serene
There is no doubt these tyres last a long time. I bought a set at 34,000kms and just replaced them at 98,000kms. Are they serene? Nope. I guess given that they are a touring tyre, I don't think they are well suited to a lighter hatchback, as they are too hard and brittle on day to day grinding drives. They may be better suited to a larger heavier car but for me, not again. I have replaced them with another Bridgestone tyre model and the difference is huge - but maybe I won't get the same kms out of these. I'm fine with that.

Value for money Tyre.
Just replaced my Bridgestone Serenity Plus after 60k and there was probably another 5-10k of tread left.A great tyre with a quite, comfortable ride. Felt very assured in the wet and dry.
Bridgestone has a 4 for the price of 3 deal so I jumped at the chance to get this great tyre again.

Very good choice for coarse chip bitumen
One of the things that annoyed me when retiring to Victoria is the very extensive network of coarse chip bitumen roads. They are pretty much everywhere in the State from local streets right through to the major 110 kmh freeways and everything in between. We can't all afford a large Lexus or other luxury car so we have to drive what we have. When I needed new tyres for my bread and butter Kia I went for these Serenity tyres since I was after a tyre that might make driving on these sorts of roads a little less fatiguing. Well, having had them fit...ted at the local Bridgestone dealer, I am impressed with these tyres. Unlike another premium brand I had on a previous car that was touted to improve ride and noise but compromised the steering feel noticeably, these Serenity tyres do what the other brand did but have not compromised the vehicle in any other department. But don't expect a miracle. According to my portable SPL meter, there was only a 3 dB reduction in noise levels at 110 kmh over the stock Nexus tyres. But it is not so much the slightly reduced noise as it is that the annoying resonances are noticeably reduced and the character of the noise is easier to tolerate. Before these tyres I was tempted at times to wear attenuating ear plugs on these sorts of roads but didn't for safety concerns. But now with these Bridgestones, I have no desire or need to even think about them and on a typical 3 hour return trip my ears are fresh and I have no fatigue. Just bear in mind these are not some sort of miracle cure or a substitute for owning a luxury car (not that most people would be that naive). But if you do need (or are close to needing) new tyres on your existing car and care about refinement but do not wish to compromise in other aspects of vehicle behaviour, these are definitely worth a try.

Just put bridgestone turanza serenity plus yesterday with promotion but 3 get 4th free at bridgestone select. The staff very professional and helpful. I brough tyres and wheel alignment at the same time. Bridgestone will e mail you to get tyre service for free every 6 months with tyre rotation. That make it worth to buy new tyre from bridgestone. I got 2 mind with Michelin primacy 4 from costco or this tyre due to bridgestone got this promotion i can save 100$ for this time.
The car fell very different from my old tyre Dunlop Lm704. Smoother, ...

Very happy so far
Swapped Potenza's on my Peugeot 3008 for these to achieve a quieter less harsh ride. LOVE 'EM!! The Potenza's were excellent road holding but transmitted too much road noise for my diminshed hearing
So far I find road holding superb, a softer much quieter ride.
It remains to be seen as to the longevity with the softer compound but.....

Overpriced, underperforming and suffers from dry rot
I ran these tyres for so long on both our cars, not knowing any better and I'm so disappointed. (check my other review for a much better tyre)
Bridgestone is the largest tyre manufacturer in the world and this Turanza is one of their more premium lines, Ecopia being the eco fuel saving line (which I also ran one time and will also review).
First there are some pros I guess, the compound is very hard wearing and sidewalls are rigid. Wet weather performance is acceptable in my view indicating tread pattern is efficient enough with water evacuat...ion. Now for the cons, this tyre is quite high price and within as little as 4 years you can expect to see dry rot (see photo). I experienced this over several sets. On top of that the ride is horrible, as the compound gets harder and stiffer over time, though even brand new it's not all that great. Road noise over coarse regional highways is just droning and these tyres make a firm suspension setup become jarring over speed humps and road imperfections. Feedback through the steering becomes vague with these tyres, even brand new, although the car is still planted ok on road owing to the decent width of the tyre. The tyres don't inspire confidence to the driver for you to push them harder. Overall, I have run some cheaper Chinese brand tyres in the past (Federal, I think) and these are comparable in every way to those. My advice is save your money, get Chinese if you must or better yet buy a tyre from a different premium manufacturer.
Quiet, smooth and Safety plus!
Ready for my second set of Turanza Serenity Plus on my 2007 Mazda 3. So safe, no more aqua planning in the rain; highly recommend & only use these for my vehicle. My Mazda is so quiet and the tyres are rotated which promotes safe driving and longevity.

Worth the investment
like glue to the road and so quick compared to my previous Dunlop's. Definitley worth the investment. This will be my second set which includes dropping the Mitsubishi 380 on King Lowered Springs.
Purchased at Bridgestone Select for $195.00.
Very good tyre, good response against the road conditions. Service attitude of Bridgestone is great. It reminds the tyre service. Service is satisfactory. Checks like my mechanic. Overall great experience.

Very happy with this investment. Turanza serenity plus has a good grip, extra tread and extra pattern making it a smooth driving experience. bridgestone currently have a 100 follar cashback promotion. Which makes it an easier choice.

Keep going on and on, set after set...
On my third set of these on a VW Golf Diesel. First set lasted 100k, second 88k, third set over 50k and oodles of tread remaining. The first set replaced the factor fitted Michelin eco tyre, which lasted 75k and were a little naughty in the wet and on cornering at speed. The Bridgestones' were immediately better and instilled more confidence as I wore them in and could corner faster and gain better traction in the wet. Hence 3 sets on and a 4th is likely.
Purchased in June 2018 for $540.00.
Had the tyres for about 8 months mainly went with them for the "serenity" but they're no quieter than the tyres they replaced, had an awful feeling one day doing a u turn that one of the tyres had rolled off the wheel but it hadn't so all was good, but still a disconcerting feeling that i've never experienced before.
They're a comfortable ride but not sure i'd buy them again.

Questions & Answers
Pressure of Serenity Plus
Can the Turanza Serenty Plus tyres be rotated diagonally?
Sorry, I can't answer your question. All I can say is that with my driving routine and high freeway klms the wear has been pretty even across all 4 tyres and rotation has not been necessary to date- on any of the 3 sets of these tyres I've had fitted. Currently, I've reached 60,000-odd Klms on 3rd set and there's easily another 20,000+ remaining. As an economical tyre on my daily driver, I can't fault them. Cheers.
