The Bridgestone ER30 Turanza is a summer grand touring tire made as original equipment tire for sports sedans, coupes, cars and SUV’s. Some of the vehicles that these are suitable for include the BMW 3 series, the Mazda Miata, the BMW 7 series, the BMW X5 and the Porsche Cayenne. These tires blend handling and good looks with low noise and superb ride comfort while providing traction on wet and dry road during warmer climate. Of course this summer tire should not be driven in colder temperatures on icy and snowy roads. The ER30 Turanza is made with a summer tread compound that is molded into a symmetric tread design. It features rectangular large tread blocks which enable the tire to provide responsive handling as well as great dry road traction. There are also circumferential tread grooves and lateral tread grooves that help with the evacuation of water from beneath the tire’s footprint. This feature helps to enhance the wet traction of the tire while reducing hydroplaning. The interior of the Turanza ER30 features two steel belts reinforced with nylon that has been spirally wrapped. This helps to provide the tire with high speed capability and also helps to enhance handling and stabilize the tires tread area. It also features a polyester cord body or rayon cord body depending on the application, either of which enhances the ride.
