    Questions and Answers for the Bridgestone Turanza T001

    2016-11-24 - Is Turanza T001 a run flat tyre. Also is it All Season or a summer tyre. I am finding conflicting informations on the internet. Regards Yasmin

    The T001 is a summer tyre available in runflat sizes. If runflat is important to you, we suggest looking at the Bridgestone DriveGuard.

    2016-10-16 - Can you suggest a more comfy and quiet tyre? 225/45/17 or would 225/50/17 be better, an increase of only 3% on circumference. Regards Mike.

    Changing the tyre size will have minimal effect, and you would have to notify your insurance company. Switching to an ultra comfortable tyre such as the Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance will have a much larger effect on overall ride quality.

    2017-10-16 - What is the difference between the Turanza T001 and the Turanza T001 MO apart from MO indicates the tyre is approved by Mercedes I cant find any difference yet the MO version is cheaper than the standard T001. Can the MO version be fitted to Toyota Verso?

    Without speaking directly to Bridgestone, I'm afraid it's impossible to know what changes were made for Mercedes OE approval. Mercedes generally ask for improvements in comfort over OE tyres.

    2020-01-08 - I have a BMW X1 67 plate. It has Bridgestone T001 Ityres fitted. It also has DOT ZGUP R2T 47/17 T01WD2 TD01 I. Please could you tell me if these are run flat tyres?

    Top Bridgestone Turanza T001 Review

    Given 33% while driving a Mazda 6 Wagon (225/45 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 1,600 average miles
    Deathtrap. That's an apt word for these tyres. They came as stock with a new Mazda 6 Tourer. It beggars belief that they would decide to put these useless pieces of rubber on their cars. Wheel spin when setting off and loss of traction on bends even at moderate speeds. In the wet they are simply appalling and it is like driving on an ice rink. If we get any snow or ice, I may have to leave the car at home. The worst tyres I have ever had.

    Given 83% while driving a Mercedes Benz E320 CDI (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 25,000 spirited miles
    Ive read all of these negative comments about these tyres on ordinary vehicles, the wear and tear, feel, wet braking, dry braking overall handling in all weathers, it’s ridiculous.!

    I have a S211 station wagon, 2 tons of kiddie carrying power, these tyres on the last 3mm sat on the rear and lasted another 15k Miles, I drive majority of above 85+mph and on clear highways I run in the low three figures and at many times sit at above 140mph whenever clear and possible, the tyres are driven hard, pushed hard and now they’re completely worn out, they’re actually slicks (illegal) but still they grip like a tyre with 3-4mm in dry weather and still trust them in the wet..! I don’t need to know about road feel, noise, as all I’m interested is in the ability carry the XL 99W rating, stopping, gripping in wet and longevity and these tyres have proven their worth.

    These are actually equal to the factory OEM fitted Continental Contact Sports which I know and trust.
    Maybe it’s your vehicle maybe it’s the way you drive and where you drive that your complaint or negativity of these said tyres come from..

    Given 54% while driving a Volkswagen T Roc (215/50 R18 V) on mostly motorways for 10 average miles
    These tyres came with a new 4WD car. We have done 10,000 miles and the fronts are down to 4mm and the rears to 4.5mm, so we are not going to get much more than another 3,000 miles out of them. They handle fine in both wet and dry. Most of our mileage is on motorways/A roads so can't give much information about potholes and unmade roads. But I am very unimpressed by the wear rate and will not buy these tyres again.

    This is the ultimate tyre test! Watch now!
    Given 64% while driving a Vauxhall Insignia grand sport 1.5t petrol (225/55 R17) on a combination of roads for 13,000 average miles
    13,000 miles from new and already 2mm from having to replace front. Rear are like new. The grip in dry/wet/snow has been really good, they can be noisy on poor Road surfaces but never notice much as radio is usually up too loud. for the price to repair I will go with uniroyal rainsport 3 as they are a better tyre and cheaper but have similar wear.

    Given 74% while driving a Toyota Camry (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 37,000 average miles
    My car was initially fitted with 4 Turanza T001 tyres and last around 60,000km. Good in the dry road but average in the wet condition. Tyre wearing was not bad too. I would say they were the comfort touring tyres.

    Given 39% while driving a Ford Mondeo Mk3 1.8 (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 28,583 easy going miles
    A really not good tyre to buy. If it comes with a low budget price it will be good to fit them for emergency purpose. We fit them before 4 years in our Ford Mondeo 1.8 125hp Ghia '04. They're the worst tyres we've been ever fit along with some kind of BF Goodrich we had years ago. Grip in dry tarmac was not good even when they was fresh installed. You have the feeling of planning in the road as you never felt your steering wheel and the car itself gripping nowhere. Braking in dry was not terrifying but when you hit the brakes the car stops a lot of meters away,while sliding like you have not abs. The same in wet tarmac grip and braking, not good at all,you feel safety walking away from you. Wear rate was not good,again. After 1 and a half year you clearly see rifts and small pieces of rubber were missing. They're "vanishing" extremely quick. Strangely, the rest 2 and a half years they worn out a bit slower. Road noise is average,not very noisy not quiet, as ride comfort was average too. The best tyres we have ever fit was the SportContact 2. It will be "ok" if they are very low budget tyres but when you give your money for Bridgestones you deserve more. Very low quality rubber. I can admit that the T001 are selling good out in the market and also that not every tyre fitting well in every car BUT that not mean that these tyres are very bad and of course i will not buy again any Bridgestone models because i had a very bad "reconciliation" with Adrenalines RE002 in my other car, a Fabia vrs. Again a very bad tyre. Strongly not recomended.
