The last ten years have been revolutionary for the auto industry, and they’ve established that the future is all-electric. Everything about electric cars is great, especially their quietness (since there’s no engine), but that means the tire noise becomes more noticeable. Well, unless you have tires like the Bridgestone Turanza QuietTrack installed!
Bridgestone Turanza QuietTrack Features
The grand-touring all-season tire segment is full of competitive offerings from all the big brands. However, Bridgestone has tried its best to stand out with the Turanza QuietTrack. What’s so unique about it? The quietness, as the name suggests.
The tire is engineered to have the least amount of road noise in its segment, and there’s Bridgestone’s cutting-edge technology behind that.
Besides that, the company claims that a lasting tread life and improved snow and wet handling are some of its other primary offerings. A lot of the credit goes to the quality of tread compound they’ve used for class-leading wear performance. The tire has more than 30 different rubber compounds to make up its tread — phew!
The tire has an asymmetric tread pattern that implements Bridgestone’s QuietTrack Technology. It also has optimized pitch sequencing, showcasing the best modern tire manufacturing engineering for maximum quietness.
The tire’s quietness also comes from a design and compound that absorb the road’s imperfections well, which means the ride will also be smooth and refined!
But how does the tire perform in dry, wet, and snowy conditions? Let’s find out.
With the Turanza QuietTrack tires installed, you’re better off in the passenger seat than the driver’s seat. That’s because most of the company’s efforts have gone into making the ride as luxurious as possible, with magically low levels of noise and cabin vibration.
On the driving side of things, the tire doesn’t miss much. It’s got sufficient cornering grip, stable handling, and impressive stopping distances. Sure, it’s nothing fancy, but it gets all the basics right on dry tarmac.
The Turanza QuietTrack offers best-in-class hydroplaning resistance, which means you won’t lose stability in deep puddles and heavy downpours. Traction and handling are also excellent, keeping the tires on par with its premium competitors.
With that said, the tire’s wet braking gets outperformed by high-priced tires in its category, but it stops shorter than most budget offerings.
Bridgestone Turanza QuietTrack Snow Performance
The Turanza QuietTrack also does well on snow-covered surfaces — making it worthy of its all-season label! Not many tires in its category can do well in all three dry, wet, and snowy conditions.
The tire is grippy enough to get you through any situation — unless it’s a super thick layer of snow in brutal winter conditions. For that, only the best winter tires could save you from getting stuck.
While the Turanza QuietTrack also comes in sizes suitable for crossovers and SUVs, it’s not meant for off-roading. A casual detour is fine, but regularly exposing it to hardpacked terrain can damage the tread. And you won’t get much traction to work with either, so I’d suggest staying on the road with these tires.
This is where the Turanza QuietTrack steers ahead of the competition — ride quality! Bridgestone has achieved industry-leading quietness by implementing several modern technologies into the tread design.
The tire also eats up the road’s imperfections, and little to no road vibration reaches the cabin.
The Bridgestone Turanza Quietrack checks all the right boxes for a top-notch grand-touring all-season tire. Not only does it guarantee one of the quietest and smoothest rides, but it also performs superbly in dry, wet, and snowy conditions. All that makes it one of the easiest tires to recommend in this category!
