Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus Tire Review & Rating
The Turanza Serenity Plus is Bridgestone's newest touring all-season tire that is designed
to provide excellent year round performance, a more comfortable ride and a longer lasting treadlife. Built for
drivers of all types of coupes, sedans, minivans and crossovers, the Serenity Plus also sports a lower rolling
resistance for added fuel efficiency.
A silica enhanced NanoPro-Tech rubber tread compound increases traction, especially on wet and snow covered road
surfaces, by controlling the interaction between the silica, carbon black and other polymers which reduce friction
and energy loss. It's a high-tech process, but it does its job very well.
Bridgestone's exclusive Resonance Noise Attenuated silencer grooves around the tread dramatically reduce road
noise, which other drivers agree is one of the most quiet tires in this class. The tire's continuous center rib
further eliminates noise, while also providing increased steering response and stability, as well as enhanced
braking and acceleration performance.
Three circumferential grooves combine with lateral grooves to give the tire exceptional wet surface traction and
hydroplane resistance. An added 3-D Sub-Surface Platform increases snow traction due to the biting edges that grip
snow, hard-packed snow and ice.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are nylon reinforced for added strength and durability
throughout the speed range. A polyester cord body provides improved ride comfort and increases stability.
Bridgestone provides up to an 80,000 mile tread guarantee on this model, and offers 15-19 inch sizes.
Dry and wet traction are outstanding
Excellent cornering performance and steering response
Exceptional ride comfort
Treadlife is very good
Tire is too new to know about winter traction (We will update as time goes by)
The Serenity Plus only came out in mid-2012, but it has quickly positioned itself as an exceptional touring
all-season tire. Dry and wet surface traction and cornering grip are excellent. The steering feel and overall
stability this tire provides is among the best in this class.
One area we do not know much about at this point is winter traction and handling, but we estimate it will be
equally as impressive. We will update our review as soon as the winter passes. Ride comfort is simply the best
among any tires in this class, and that includes Michelin, Pirelli and any other brand. Road noise is nearly
non-existent as well.
Treadlife has already shown to be long lasting, which is backed up with an 80,000 mile tread guarantee. Overall,
this Bridgestone is a tire worth having. The price is budget-friendly, and the performance you can expect is
Bridgestone provides a 5-year or 80,000 mile tread warranty on H-speed rated models. The mileage warranty is
