Bridgestone Terranzos?

As it says, any good? The tyre people keep telling me these are the best I can get in a 225/15, all the cops in the Eastern States use them. That doesn't mean shit though, it just means the cops got a good deal.
So has anyone used them?

Re: Bridgestone Terranzos?

Ive had them on the font of my car in a 225 15, i think they are called a turanza er32. Then used on the rear at a few drag meets and lots of skids and still lasting. When i put 215 g grids on the front i was shocked at the grip i lost from a normal looking tyre, whereas the g grid is a directional "sporty" tyre. I paid $135ea for mine. Only tyre better that ive had is a yokie a539? They were good.

They are very a good tyre.

Re: Bridgestone Terranzos?

The SA police use Turanza ER30's. 225/60's. If the cops use em, they'd have to be somewhat good. I've had em for a while and they are very long lasting. Mine have taking lots of abuse. Harder compound or something.

They grip well and last because of the Silica Content.

Re: Bridgestone Terranzos?

I've had them on mu AUXR6 for over 30k, still heaps of tread left . Brilliant tyre, wet and dry and quiet. I wouldn't hesitate to put them on again.

Re: Bridgestone Terranzos?

According to the Bridgestone website, the Potenza GIII's are the best bridgestone tyre available, highest they go is 225 in 15".
I also have Yokohama A539, and they are supposed to be the Yokohama allround tyre according to their website, so imagine a Performance orientated Yokohama tyre like the YokohamA AVS V102.
