    Aug 2, 2004 by

    Pros: Quiet Smooth riding
    Cons: Not for use in the snow or performance driving.

    Summary: I just sent my set of Bridgestone Turanza EL42's to that big tire rack in the sky. Not a terrible tire when it comes to ride comfort. They are quiet and run smooth. On long trips during the summer months my wife and I both comented on how smooth the ... read more

    Pros: Long tread life - 70K miles and going strong
    Cons: Expensive

    Summary: I guess I’m going to be in the minority here, but here goes. I have a 2003 Nissan Maxima that came with a set of Bridgestone Turanza EL42 tires, size 215/55-17, V-rated. The car is just about to turn 70,000 miles and the tires are still in good ... read more

    Pros: Absolutely none.
    Cons: Read my review

    Summary: My wife's new 2007 Chrysler Town & Country came equipped with these Bridgestones from the factory. She experienced a loss of pressure at highway speed on the left rear tire. She called me and asked what to do. Due to a recent snowstorm, she could not ... read more

  • They make me wonder what Infiniti was thinking

    Nov 30, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: V-rated, good traction, well suited for poor weather
    Cons: Very questionable quality control, coarse ride, susceptible to road variations.

    Summary: I have been quite sensitive to tires and how they can determine the personality of an automobile ever since my fathers 1982 Honda Accord hatchback went from a mushy interloper to a fine freeway warrior simply by replacing the rubber. The Turanza's which ... read more

  • Okay by me - no squeal, long life.

    Dec 8, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: No squeal, long life.
    Cons: Relatively expensive, and hard riding (which might be the car!).

    Summary: I just wanted to add my 2 cents. I found out (from a Tire Rack "consultant" (highly recommended) that this tire was made custom for Infiniti, which is why they are more expensive than they should be. Bridgestone is doing misleading naming by calling this ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Acceptable mileage.
    Cons: Transmit road noise, poor wet handling performance, and pricey!

    Summary: 57,000 miles gives you a lot of time to evaluate a set of tires. My calculator tells me that this is equivalent to approximately 1,700 hours of driving time. My butt concurs. The set of Bridgestone Touranza EL42s currently on my vehicle came as stock ... read more

    Summary: Had these tyres on the car since I purchased it, just today pulling away from a set of lights, turning a corner on a slight off-camber corner. As soon as the slightest bit of throttle (literally depressing the pedal by 10mm on a car with not a huge ... read more

    Pros: Performance in all conditions
    Cons: Pitiful mileage wear/product life.

    Summary: These tires came on my wife's car at purchase.  My wife is a slow driver, so I would think that she would have gotten a resonable amount of mileage out of these.  These tires were ultimately replaced because of a sidewall blowout.  ... read more

    Noticeable road noise.

    Pros: Tire wear seems to be OK. I have them rotated every 3000 miles or so.
    Cons: None so far since they replaced the worn wheel bearing.

    Summary: This review is about the Bridgestone Insignia SE Tires. Previously, I wrote that these tires gave so much noise that it sounded like an airplane instead of a 2004 Grand Prix. Since the first review, the tire installation store diagnosed the problem as a ... read more
