Great tyres

published

We are very happy with these tyres. They have been on our 4 wheel drive for 6 months now. There is hardly any road noise and they handle well in both wet and dry conditions. There is still plenty of tyre tread because I use this car as my main car everyday for work. Around 90 kilometers each way .

Purchased in February 2019 at Tyroola for $943.24.

215/40/18 Turanza T001 - Decent, but better options out there for the money.

published

These came as standard fitment on the 18inch wheels for the Polo GTI.
They are pretty quiet on the highway, comfortable and dry grip is OK.

In wet weather though, these really tyres struggle for grip. I know the car has a bit of power, but it's not excessive by any means (147 kw). The tyres lose traction very quickly in the wet.

It will be interesting to see how these go with a few kilometers under their belt, currently the car has only done 1,000 kilometers.

Going again, would I use Turanza...?? no. I will go Pilot Sport 4 or Yokohama Advan Sport.

Poor Quality! Warning buy at your own risk

published

I have bought my bridgestone tyre for about 1 year. There is still good treads on the tyre. One day I started to drive my car for about 5 minutes, I started to lose control of the car. After inspection of the bridgestone tyre, I noticed a big hole in the inner wall of the tyre. This is unacceptable, as it causes me to lose control of the car.
This is a premature failure of bridgestone tyre. I am upset with these bridgestone tyres I bought as it fail in such a short time of usage. I strongly recommend others to stay away from these tyres.

Great tyres

published

I purchased these tyres recently for my Skoda Fabia III. I am very pleased with the lack of noise from the Bridgestone Turanzas. For a premium tyre they are value for money. 50000 kilometres plus out of these tyres no problem. I would recommend these tyres for your next tyre purchase.

Touring tyre that is quiet and hard wearing..As described!

published

Have done 77000km in just on one year on these tyres, In a Skoda Octavia RS diesel.
They replaced the amazing but short lived Continental Sport tyres that were OEM fitment and very expensive to replace.
They were less than 1/2 price of the OEM tyres, the Bridgestone T001 were quieter and possibly more economical.
Around corners only ok (per usual touring tyres) but hard wearing and great in the wet. For the price and if your car is a bit prone to road noise, highly recommended!

Excessive wear, noisy and useless in wet

published

Put these tyres on my wife's Mazda3 to replace the worn out OEM tyres which lasted 75,000km. Was upsold these by Bridgestone by being told they were a much safer tyre with superior wet weather grip. What a load of crap - wet weather grip is on par with a cheap Chinese no-name tyre, they are excessively noisy compared to the original tyres and didn't even last 35,000km - and to top it off we had 3 punctures in 2 yrs - might just have been bad luck but hadn't had a puncture in 10 yrs on the same roads. Wouldn't recommend these tyres to anyone.

Good, solid, very long lasting tyre.

published

This tyre was standard fitment on a Mazda 6 (225/45 19). I ran this tyre for 57,500 km (3.5 years) in predominantly warm, dry, conditions. Very long lasting (still had another 5,000 km or so left in them), remained round and balanced. Tyres a little hard - dry grip was fair to good, wet grip was fair, but never had a problem with grip. Good, long lasting, trouble free tyre, but not a 'performance' tyre.

Tyres were replaced with Bridgestone Potenzas which are more performance biased (grip and turn in feel marginally better) but I expect them to not last as long (as always, there is a balance between softer 'grippier' tyres and harder longer wearing tyres).

Great tyre

published

Had the tyres for little over 40,000kms and grip was still fantastic even with little amount of tread on them. They are a tyre that will not let you down when you need to rely on them. Not the cheapest though. Ride comfort could maybe improve a little bit also.

A decent tyre for a decent price.

published

Had these fitted to my RWD Turbo wagon which is used for long trips, towing, carrying heavy loads and stop start driving. Fitted them before a long trip to Sydney from Melbourne and these tyres combined with fresh brakes saved my wife, myself and the car from having a Eastern Kangaroo through the windscreen, damp conditions and tyres with 1000km on them. However as they get to the 3mm of tread left they are thrown out of balance easily and in general will make me happy to see them go. The car's handling limits were not met by these tyres and they will squeel sooner than more performance orientated tyres I've used but they aren't the worst in my experience.
