Information on the tyre:
Bridgestone Turanza T001 is the optimum choice for drivers who want to enjoy full performance and safety on the road, taking care of the environment at the same time. This summer tyre manufactured by Bridgestone is a product with unique properties that ensure its perfect operation in all weather conditions and this may come as a surprise to some drivers. NanoPro-Tech technology significantly reduces rolling resistance (up 19%). The flat profile used in the tyre increases its contact with the ground, which results in better grip and improved manoeuvrability.
Specially designed asymmetric tread pattern with unique groove reduces noise emission, ensuring greater driving comfort. Large lateral tread blocks ensure adequate stiffness and the immediate response of the tyre. The structure of the tread also improves resistance to mechanical damage. One major advantage of the model is facilitated by the wide grooves that efficiently evacuate water and minimise the risk of aquaplaning. The high-tech rubber compound used for manufacturing Bridgestone Turanza T001 extends the operational life of the tyre. In addition, the tyre wears evenly across its tread surface, guaranteeing its safety and full performance throughout its life.
