Product description & features
The Bridgestone Turanza T005 DriveGuard is a high performance car tyre, developed to deliver excellent steering response. It is the run flat version of the popular Turanza T005 tyre.
Bridgestone have included their B-Silent technology in the Turanza T005 tyre, to help minimise road noise and enhance driver comfort.
The Turanza T005 has been designed with dense siping in the tyre's tread blocks - these help to remove water from the tyre's path, therefore reducing the risk of aquaplaning and improving wet grip.
The tyre features sidewall reinforcement to help the tyre keep its shape - for up to 50 miles at a maximum speed of 50mph - in the event of a puncture or sudden loss of air pressure.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
