So far so good
Replaced set of 4 tyres 2 weeks ago. Have driven on a variety of road conditions so far and tyres have been fine. Drive is much smoother and quieter. Durability is unknown at present. Price is comparable and good when purchased during 4 for 3 deals offered at various tyre shops.
Definitely worth what its value
Before i before i bought bridgestone tyres, i used to buy the cheapest i could get and it wasn't worth it although that's all i could afford at the time. My old tyres would wear out incredibly fast. I have now had bridgestone for 5 months and they've barely lost tread!!
The tyres are very durable. and the great guys at Bridgestone fit, balance and put them on. I even got a brand new on for my spare. When theres only metal between you and the road, why would you want retreads. I've been a customer for Bridgestone for many years and they are exceptional, and will help you for the right tyre for your car. I feel safe with good tread on my wheels

One of the tyres on my car was punctured and completely damaged, so I was thinking to replace the tyre. I then got the offer to replace 4 for the price of 3. I got four tyres replaced in Sept 2017 and they have performed at the level as I expected: smooth and easy handling. No dramas so far. As I have not used them long enough, I can't comment on the mileage they can run.
good as it gets.
I purchased these tires as a replacement to my continental CC5 215/60/16 , which lasted for about 5 years 59,500 kms. I was very happy with the conti's (see my review on the conti's 54,000 km and still going strong.) that I was ready to purchase the same tires again However I decided to do a bit of research on other tires which my be as good as the cont's but for a better price. I have used Bridgestone tires in the past with mixed results, supercat for example can be a little unpredictable in the wet ( not in a good way if you get my meanin...g), were as Turanza ER30 can be rather noisy and lose griping performance as they build up kms. However know getting to the review on the Turanza Serenity Plus EL64 ( I purchased from Bridgestone Rowville on a buy 3 and get the 4th tyre for $10 promotion ), from the moment I drove out of the fitting centre I could get a feel of the difference between my previous conti's and the Bridgestone. As it so happened it was a very wet and rainy day, so straight away I could get a feel of how they would handle wet conditions.( this is a very important aspect when buying tires), Straight away I was totally amazed by the grip that these tires gave in the wet ( not that I drive on the edge, but I did push them just a little and they did not let me down). When the car had to brake it did so in a straight line with no hint of fish tail putting me in complete control, Coming into corners, you can do so with confidence that the car will go were you want it to go. As for road noise I thought my conti's were quiet until I drove on these, they are by far the quietest tires I have ever driven on. I have only had the tires on the car for about 3 months and done just under 3,000 kms, So only time will tell what wear I will get out of them ( note Bridgestone give a 50,000 km wear warranty on these tires). In closing if these tires continue to perform for the life of the tires as they have done so far I will not be able to fault in any way. Bridgestone continue to produce excellent tires and these are the best I have driven on by far, If you are looking for new tires, you will not be disappointed with the Serenity plus EL64.

Took advantage of Bridgestone’s buy 3 get the 4th free sale when really all I needed was to replace a punctured tyre as I had 3 Bridgestone Ecopias already on.
The first drive I noticed the difference. The 4 serenity plus tyres are so much more quieter and I feel my Suzuki SX4 just gliding on the surface of the road. Only just got them so will test it out further when I get the chance.

Good all round tyre
Placed these tyres on my ute and travelled 3000 k's the ute is light in the back so I needed tyres that would grip in all weather they are a good all round tyre with minimum road noise tried to fish tail it at roundabouts in the wet but they hung on too well.
Less noise more grip
Modern Mazdas are great cars but their road noise is worse than a 323 hatchback with a rusty roofrack. A set of Bridgestone Serenity Plus (thankyou Mr. Cantstanya) will reduce the road noise to a more gentle roar while the handling seems much much sharper. Have not yet tested them in really wet conditions but the grip feels great.
Truth in advertising - they are very quiet!
I bought these tyres for an aging Ford Falcon that was fitted with some outdated "Mystique Blue-Streak" hoops of teflon. Not much of a comparison to be made. The cheap no-name tyres were hard and noisy. They let the rear of the car break away in the wet with minimal acceleration in corners. Even with a fair amount of tread left. They were the worst tyres I've ever driven on.
With the new Serenity Plus all I can hear is a wheel bearing I'd never heard before and another noise I'm unsure about. The difference cornering in the wet has been like ...
Great all round tyres
Purchased 4 new from Bridgestone and took advantage of the 4th for $10 promo. Amazing grip in all conditions, especially the wet where they truly excel. On the road, they are a lot quieter than the original tyres on the car (Yokohama) and fuel economy seems to be about the same. Highly recommend
Quiet, Comfortable and with good road holding
I replaced some Achilles tyres that had cracked sidewalls (apparently a common issue so buyer beware on that brand). The Serenity's are a great tyre - quiet and grippy with with better comfort than the Achilles - I highly recommend anyone looking for a replacement tyre to go with the Serenity

Good quiet tyres.
A really good deal from Bridgestone Direct purchasing 4 tyres for price of 3. They are a very quiet tyre and have performed extremely well in all road conditions. Had a situation in the wet and they pulled up sharply with out much skidding.
Nice looking tyres and would recommend.
The warranty is really good when you purchase 4 tyres from Bridgestone together with wheel alignment. It covers 50000 km. My previous set of tyres only last for 28000km. So it is expected to last as double as other tyre but the price of the tyres is comparable with other tyres.
Good tyre for the price
I previously had the Bridgestone GR-90 which had exceptional grip in the wet, however are no longer available. The Serenity Plus are the replacement. For the price they are a good tyre. They are reasonably quiet and long lasting. The grip in the wet is good, but not nearly as good as the GR-90, however it is much better than some other tyres I've had (Toyo Teo Plus). I will buy these again next time if they wear out before the car does.
The tyres are as advertised. They provide a much quieter ride when compared with factory tyres or even sporty tyres like the Bridgestone Potenza range. They are mildly more comfortable than other tyres though not substantially so. They provide sufficient grip on wet and dry roads though can lose grip with an aggressive acceleration on wet roads (cornering seems to be fine).
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.
