Full Tyre Description

Bridgestone launched the new Turanza T005 in the second half of 2017, replacing its Turanza T001 EVO, and joining the innovative DriveGuard in covering the European car tyre market. The tyre was made in Europe to offer motorists "improved wet performance and fuel economy, combined with high mileage." In 2018, the world’s number largest tyre and rubber company introduced its Turanza T005 touring tyre to the market, delivering wet performance and fuel economy, combined with high mileage, to give drivers full control in challenging daily situations. According to the company, thousands of drivers actually helped design the tyre in the first place, with Bridgestone interviewing 15,000 premium tyre buyers across Europe to identify their needs and expectations of a touring tyre - and the challenges they face in daily driving. The Turanza T005 is designed to deliver best-in-class braking and cornering in the rain with an EU label grade "A" for wet grip. It offers a consistent and reliable driving performance while keeping a low fuel consumption and carbon emissions. To create the ideal touring tyre, Bridgestone designed the Turanza T005 with the consumer for the consumer.
