Bridgestone Turanza ER33 review
What is it?
The Bridgestone Turanza ER33 is a grand touring summer tire designed for original equipment use on coupes and sedans from Toyota, Infiniti and Lexus.
As compared to replacement tires, original equipment tires (tires fitted to new vehicles) have a habit of falling short on performance, value, or both. So does the Bridgestone Turanza ER33 fit that mold, or buck the trend?
Strengths and weaknesses?
The Turanza ER33 provides decent dry traction with just adequate wet condition performance and comfort characteristics.
Data indicates that Turanza ER33 treadlife is very poor, which is a bit of a problem because the Turanza ER33 is far from an inexpensive tire.
How does the Turanza ER33 compare?
In the limited group of grand touring summer tires, the Turanza ER33 ranks third out of three tires according to Tire Rack user feedback.
The Turanza ER33 offes no noteworthy performance characteristics. And real world feedback indicates unacceptable treadlife, and therefore suspect overall value.
Anything else to know?
Moving on from the Turanza ER33 original equipment tire could be transformative for your ride in a good way... We recommend that you take the plunge.
The grand touring summer category of tires is generally behind the curve, and comparatively stagnant.
Ultra high and high performance all season tires, high performance summer tires, and grand touring all season tires offer myriad advantages over the Turanza ER33 and other grand touring summer tires. Even if you don't require four season performance, we'd suggest that grand touring all season tires like the Kumho Solus TA71 and Michelin Premier A/S are superior options to the Turanza ER33 in any conditions.
