Bridgestone Turanza ER300 review
What is it?
The Bridgestone Turanza ER300 summer tire is engineered for original equipment use on certain Mercedes-Benz sedans. The Turanza ER300 can also be used as replacement tires on other coupes and sedans.
While not officially a part of the Ecopia line of tires from Bridgestone, the Turanza ER300 aims to provide low rolling resistance and increased efficiency/fuel economy.

Strengths and weaknesses?
Much like the Turanza ER30, the Turanza ER300 delivers very solid dry performance and grip for the category. Users also report favorable comfort characteristics, and treadlife (unlike with the Turanza ER30). The Turanza ER300 may also be more fuel efficient than grand touring summer alternatives.
According to our analysis, fuel efficient tires like the Turanza ER300 do have some economical and environmental merit. See our article, Do Fuel Efficient Tires Work? And Do They Save You Money?
How does it compare?
Direct comparative data is lacking. Expect the Turanza ER300 to deliver best in category dry grip and performance, but keep in mind that the grand touring summer tire category and direct competition is quite limited (see below).
Anything else to know?
Limited 16" and 17" sizes available.
The grand touring summer category of tires is behind the curve, and comparatively stagnant.
Ultra high and high performance all season tires, high performance summer tires, even grand touring all season tires offer myriad advantages over the Turanza ER300 and other grand touring summer tires. All of that said, the Turanza ER300 remains a solid overall option.
One alternative grand touring all season tire worth considering is the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring. For one thing, it's quite a bit less costly than the Turanza ER300.
