Bridgestone Turanza T001 RFT

Advantages:

  • Best balance between handling and comfort
  • Low rolling resistance with minimal pattern noise
  • NanoPro-Tech™ compound

Tyre description:

The Turanza T001 tyre was developed with luxury touring in mind. Offering superior performance on the open road, the T001 features advanced noise reduction grooves to insulate against environmental noise while maintaining ride comfort. Combined with the revolutionary tread compound resulting in reduced rolling resistance, the enhanced design delivers better road contact, braking in wet and dry conditions and longer tyre life.

RFT (Run Flat Tires)

Bridgestone run-flat tires offer peace of mind, so drivers know they won’t be stranded with a flat. With run-flat tires, you can drive up to 50 miles at speeds up to 50 miles per hour, allowing you to reach a safe place to stop. Bridgestone run-flat tires are designed with strong self-supporting sidewalls capable of temporarily carrying the weight of a vehicle, even after complete loss of air pressure.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.

Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.

Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
