The Bridgestone ER300 Turanza is a fuel efficient summer grand touring tire. These tires were made as original equipment tires for Mercedes Benz sedans but they can be used on a number of sedans and coupes as replacements. These tires provide combined handling, traction and comfort for wet and dry road conditions and of course cannot be driven in temperatures close to freezing where there is snow or ice on the surface. This tire has a summer tread compound and sports an asymmetric design. They feature large tread blocks with continuous circumferential ribs that provide traction on dry roads and responsive handling. It also features circumferential and lateral grooves that help to push water away from the footprint of the tire thereby enhancing the wet traction of the vehicle by reducing hydroplaning. Internally the tire’s structure features two steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon and aramid. This helps to stabilize the tread area and helps to provide the tires with their high speed capability and enhances their handling. These tires can be found with the Bridgestone Ecopia branding that signifies that they offer reduced tire rolling resistance to enhance the fuel economy of your car.
The Turanza ER300 2 TURANZA is Bridgestone’s Grand Touring Summer tire, and was developed for use on Mercedes Benz sedans. They can also be used as replacement tires on sedans and coupes. The RE 300 2 TURANZA has the ability to combine handling, traction and comfort in both dry and wet situations. It is similar to all other summer tires in that it was designed for use in temperatures close to freezing on ice and through snow.
The RE 300 2 TURANZA has several features:
Shapes a summer tread compound into a specific tread design.
Extended circumferential ribs and large tread blocks, which support reactive handling on dry roads.
Circumferential and crosswise tread grooves that help to remove water from beneath the tire’s footprints, to improve wet traction and minimize hydroplaning.
The inside structure of the tire consists of identical steel belts that are covered by spiral wrapped nylon and aramid, which allow the stabilization of the tread region for improved handling and high speed ability.
Patented with Bridgestone’s Ecopia symbol is an indication that the ER 300 2 Turanza tires provides reduced rolling resistance to boost the vehicle’s fuel economy, and help to lessen the vehicle's carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
The Bridgestone ER33 Turanza is a grand touring summer tire that is most often used as an original equipment tire for sedans from Infiniti, sports coupes from Infiniti as well as sedans and sports coupes from Toyota and Lexus. These tires blend predictable handling, good looks, a smooth ride and low noise all in a tire that provides great traction on dry and wet roads. These are summer tires and not to be driven in snow or ice and shouldn’t be worn in near freezing temperatures. These tires are made from a summer tread compound that has been molded into a 5-rib symmetric tread design that helps to provide great traction and predictable handling. There are also the lateral notches and circumferential tread grooves that enhance wet traction by reducing hydroplaning. The Bridgestone ER33 has twin steel belts that have been reinforced with nylon that is spirally wrapped with nylon to stabilize the tread area and enhance high speed capability and handling. There is also a rayon or polyester cord body on the inside depending on the application.
The Bridgestone Serenity Turanza is an all season grand touring tire that was created for drivers of luxury performance sedans and sporty coupes. These as their name suggests are made with Serenity technology and provide the best in noise and ride comfort together with great traction all year round including in light snow. The Turanza technology mold a compound that is silica reinforced and made with long link carbon black material. This compound features an asymmetric design with shoulder ribs and a continuous center rib that helps to reduce noise while driving and also help to improve the straight-line stability of the vehicle they are used on. Another design element is the multiple lateral grooves and the three circumferential grooves that help to evacuate water providing the tire with more hydroplaning resistance. Internally the tires are made strong by high tensile twin steel belts that are further reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon. These ensure a stable tread area which provides great stability at high speeds and also great ride quality and excellent handling while minimizing weight. There is also an internal polyester cord body with added rubber sidewall reinforcements to enhance the cornering stability and steering response not to mention the ride quality of the tire.
