Bridgestone has launched their new Turanza T005 premium touring tyre in Ireland which is A rated for wet braking.
Developed and produced in Europe, Bridgestone Turanza T005 delivers outstanding wet performance and fuel economy, combined with high mileage, to give drivers full control in challenging daily situations, especially on rainy days… ideal for Ireland!
“The early reaction from the tyre trade and motorists in Ireland has been very positive,” says Colm Conyngham, Marketing and PR Manager, Bridgestone Ireland. “One of the top concerns for Irish motorists is wet weather performance and the T005 has been engineered to excel in this area.”
The Bridgestone Turanza T005 is now available in a wide line-up in tyre centres around Ireland and will be replacing the T001 EVO. The Turanza T005 size line-up will provide almost complete coverage of touring tyre demand by 2019, with more than 140 sizes for 14’’ to 21’’ rims. At the same time, Bridgestone will simplify its touring tyre line-up, with Turanza T005 and DriveGuard covering the complete touring segment.
Jakob Rønsholt, Managing Director, Products and Solutions Strategy at Bridgestone EMEA summarises: “The new Turanza T005 premium touring tyre is a core product in the Bridgestone portfolio with significantly high demand coverage. No chances were taken in its development: we analysed consumer needs very carefully and then produced a tyre that meets these expectations. Bridgestone Turanza T005 puts drivers in control, especially in the wet.”
Turanza T005 offers drivers best-in-class EU label A-grade wet grip and outstanding B-grade rolling resistance. Selected sizes in the line-up provide A/A grade performance.
