“Turanzo T001 205-55-R16-W on Ford Focus Mk2 poor handling”

Written on: 14/12/2013 by Bruce123 (1 review written)

I bought these for all 4 wheels 6 months ago for £80 each, seemed reasonable for a major brand. At current rate of wear they should last for 30K miles, which I am happy with. I also did a quick test in wet and dry and breaking in a straight line it was OK. What's the problem with them then? Turning and cornering isn't safe. For example, when simply turning around a bend or overtaking a parked vehicle the car loses traction and 'slides' out. I then I have to compensate by turning the wheel… Read Full Review

“Front tires external thread wearing out too fast, too soon”

Written on: 27/06/2013

Drive a bmw 118d f20. Rear wheel drive and 140bhp. I am poorly amazed by these tires lifespan! In less then 10 months and 20.000 Km, the front left tyre has run out of the external thread (really out! 0 mm of thread) while the right tyre still has some depth(not much, but surely more than 0mm). I'm not making fancy corners all day, and surely not all to the right side! I drive home-work-home so not much room for fancy driving. The reason why they are worn out is because they suck!! Bad tyres… Read Full Review

“Very poor in slippy conditions”

Written on: 18/09/2012

They may be a reasonable tyre on dry roads but they give no warning at all before letting go when it is slippy. I was luck to get away with cosmetic damage after losing front end control at 5mph in the snow. That was simply turning the steering wheel with no breaking. My traction control was cutting in constantly when pulling off but when I replaced them with Vredestein HiTrac it didn't need to help out once. The road noise gets very loud when they wear down whereas other brands have not been… Read Full Review

Bridgestone Turanza are NOT winter tyres, thus they will NOT perform well in winter conditions. Summer tyres behave as if they are made of plastic in temperatures +3 degrees and under because of the rubber they are made of. I had them for two SUMMER seasons and replaced them with another set of Turanzas, as I am happy with them! However, I have a set of winter tyres in the loft, which I put on our cars when the winter comes. I do not expect to feel warm in the winter wearing only summer clothes, so please - do not expect winter performance from summer tyres!

“Shocked by some of the reviews”

Written on: 19/12/2011

I am very shocked by some of the negative reviews of these tyres. They are great. They were fitted as standard to my Astra and I got just shy of 50,000 miles before needing to replace the front ones, rear tyres still had 8mm at this point. I drive about 35,000 miles a year on various types of road and these tyres cope well with them all very well. Today I drove on a very wet motorway and there was not even the slightest loss of grip. I have had better tyres in the snow, but they cope pretty… Read Full Review

“Bridgestone Turanza 205 55 16 Appaling Wear Rate”

My wife has just worn out a front pair of Turanzas on her 2.2 CDTI Honda Civic and they have lasted no more than 18 months on a car that has done no more than 8,000 miles in that time. Really terrible tyre wear and given my other car is also a Honda Accord with the same engine I am getting over 20,000 miles from them and they are Michelin Pilot Sport 2's. So far the Civic has gon through 3 sets of tyres in the time the Accord has gone through 2 sets. Think I will pay the extra next time for… Read Full Review

Have you considered the possibility of your and her different driving styles affecting wear rate?
Maybe she is heavier on both the accelerator and brakes.

Written on: 08/04/2011

I bought 4 new tyres 3 months ago, Bridgestone Turanza 205 / 55R16
and already one has a huge bulge on the side wall. I brought it back to the place i bought it in Galway, Fastfit tyres and i could not get any money back or even a new replacement tyre for it.

I am a very careful driver, and live in the countryside, so don't have any kerbs i could drive up onto or against. There are a few potholes, but i drive carefully.

Fastfit in Galway said they contact Bridgestone, but no refund, or no… Read Full Review

“nasty tyres, way too soft. ”

Written on: 30/01/2011

nasty tyres, way too soft.

Twice have had innocent obejects punch the sidewall (things which shouldnt even make a mark really), never seen anything like it in 18 yrs driving. These tyres both got punctured within 1month of fitting. Sidewall rubber too soft, like eraser more. These tyres are bad. Totally useless. They might hold the road good because they are soft, but the wear quick, and frankly a total waste of money...

Just changed to 4 new Bridgestone Turanza's after 30,000K. The roads round here are very bad, so I'm surprised they lasted as long as they did. The road handling is great and they are quiet on the road. My MPG is over 50 - it's a diesel car… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/06/2010

This Turanza tire came standard with my brand new Honda Civic 2006. All 4 tires were worn down completely to the warning bar after aprox. 28,000 KM (17,000 Miles). Absolute garbage Tires!!!! If I had an option to not put a star for any of the ratings in this review I simply would not. I only had to put a star as it is mandatory to complete this review. The replacement cost by Honda with the exact same tire was aprox. $250.00 for each tire not including tax, balancing, or installation. A set… Read Full Review

Just about to replace my front tyres after 38,700 miles, the rears look like they'll last 40K+. [But some excellent, cheap Yokohamas in the US are guaranteed to last 70K+ - those are excellent in every way - and cheap.]

“Had a sidewall blowout on a front tyre after 5000 km!...”

Written on: 13/01/2010 by Doctor Steve (1 review written)

Had a sidewall blowout on a front tyre after 5000 km! Classic conical failure pattern from excessive internal stress; definitely a manufacturing defect. Lost control of the car in icy conditions; back swung round and hit a lamp post but the car's as tough as old boots, so no worries. I had Potenzas on the back which I have now put on the front (Turanzas now on the back). I find that the Potenzas are poor at road holding on ice compared with the Turanzas but hopefully the thaw is on it's… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/11/2009

I have the Bridgestone Turanza P205/5516 89H M+S on a brand new 2009 Corolla that I bought 13 months ago. I have 24K on the car, and the tires are shot. That's simply unacceptable to have to buy new tires on a new car before 40K.

I think this is simply a very poor quality product, and I'm shocked that Toyota allowed this garbage on their car.

Time to replace them much to my chagrin, and I feel stupid for not having researched the tires on a new car before I purchased it… Read Full Review

Artyfaktz's Comment

Written on: 11/01/2010

It's utterly unfair to suggest that 24k is a short life - this reviewer is probably not aware that the "M&S" version is for "Mud & Snow" and is necessarily a very soft winter compound. Unless the car was bought near the Arctic Circle, the dealer should not have fitted them. Used in the conditions for which they're designed, they are an excellent tyre.

I have a 2008 Scion XB. 19k miles on the Turanza tires and the wear bars are showing. Called Bridgestone to complain and they blamed Toyota. Said they use a different spec compound on OEM tires for Toyota to meet CAFE, reduce the rolling resistance and give the driver a better ride. Not happy I have to replace my tires so soon… Read Full Review
