Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Tire Review & Rating

The Turanza Serenity from Bridgestone combines all-season traction and handling with the comfort and quietness expected out of a touring tire. Engineered for drivers of sporty coupes and sedans, the Serenity offers a number of unique technology elements that have given it high marks from even the most critical drivers.

The tread features a silica enhanced compound with L.L. Carbon Black that combine to provide longer tread wear and improved wet or snow surface traction. The added circumferential and lateral grooves further enhance handling on wet roads and greatly reduce the risk of hydroplaning.

Turanza Serenity by Bridgestone Tires

Dry pavement traction and cornering grip is strengthened through a continuous center rib and outer shoulder ribs. The result is increased stability and a better contact patch during cornering. Hard rubber sidewall inserts further enhance steering response and provide added stability in hard cornering.

Serenity Technology also gives this tire a more comfortable and quiet ride while driving either in-town or out on the open highway. Drivers everywhere have mentioned how quiet this tire is, and likewise, we agree their assessment.

Inside the tire you will find two high tensile steel belts with spirally wrapped nylon that provide added strength and stability at higher speeds, while also improving handling and ride comfort. Bridgestone has a 70,000 mile warranty on the Turanza with Serenity Technology as well.

Pros

  • All-season traction is outstanding   
  • Excellent cornering stability   
  • One of the most comfortable riding tires in its class   
  • Long lasting tread life   

Cons

  • As tire wears down, wet surface handling has been an issue for some drivers   

Overall Thoughts

Note: Since this review was written, Bridgestone has discontinued this model and replaced it with the updated Serenity Plus. You can read our review here.  

The Turanza Serenity is an oldie but goodie in the way of touring all-season tires. It continues to maintain its place close to the top of its class due to its outstanding all-season performance, smooth quiet ride and long treadlife. The only thing we would like to see improvement in would be wet surface traction. Even so, it’s easy to see why this tire has been such a popular choice for several years.
