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.
Purchased in October 2014.
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.
Very low mileage
I have had 2 sets of these on a Honda jazz and they wear out at 42000 km mark which I think is pretty poor I do 60 % highway 40 % city and they just can’t live up to my expectations
Purchased in April 2017 for $560.00.

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.
