Bridgestone’s all new Turanza T005A offers exceptionally comfortable driving experience for both short and long distance journeys

Bridgestone Tyre Sales Singapore Pte Ltd has announced the official launch of its Turanza T005A premium high performance tyre that promises a smooth journey with first class comfort, superior quietness and assured safety.

This flagship tyre features variable pitch that reduces pattern noise and high-angle sipes that are fine-tuned to soften tyre impact on the road leading to less road noise.

In addition, the improved tyre contact shape and reinforced sidewall help reduce vibrations.

Through Bridgestone’s advanced tyre technologies and various on-the-road tests, Turanza T005A is designed and developed to be equipped with an optimised contact shape that ensures consistent contact pressure on the road to reduce shock and impact noise for better comfort.

Turanza T005A has also been improved at the molecular level, with Bridgestone introducing an exclusive Nano Pro-Techâ„¢ compound for this tyre. The new compound is engineered to strengthen the bond between silica and polymer to increase the contact area, resulting in reduced heat generation and energy loss, leading to better wet performance and safety.

Lastly, chamfering on the tyre prevents deformation and ensures even contact with the road for improved braking performance.

“We’re very excited to bring our latest Turanza tyre to Singapore and believe that it will fulfill premium car owners’ high expectations on the ride comfort of their vehicle,” said Mr. Michael Tan, Managing Director of Bridgestone Tyre Sales Singapore Pte Ltd.

36 different sizes ranging from 15 to 19-inch, in tyre profiles 35 to 65, are available.
