Bridgestone - summer tyres 2024 - market overview, tests, reviews

Compare Bridgestone summer tyres made in your size:


In our quest to provide the most thorough and informative reviews on summer tyres, we've selected a handful of Bridgestone models based on their recent performance in various tests. Bridgestone, a name synonymous with quality and innovation in the tyre industry, offers a range of summer tyres designed to meet various driving needs. Below are detailed overviews of three standout models: the Bridgestone Turanza 6, Bridgestone Potenza Sport, and Bridgestone Turanza T005. Each tyre has been carefully evaluated in different conditions and by various automotive organizations to guide you in making the best choice for your vehicle.


**Bridgestone Turanza 6** emerges as a new contender in the summer tyre category. With no previous generations for comparison, it has immediately proven its worth across a variety of tests. In 2024, organizations such as ACE, Auto Motor Sport, Autozeitung, and Auto Bild have given this tyre commendations like "recommended," "good," and "exemplary" across sizes ranging from 205/55 R16 to 235/55 R18. Whether it's for its new summer profile that offers balanced driving characteristics, secure handling in both wet and dry conditions, or its commendable mileage capability, the Bridgestone Turanza 6 has consistently scored well. However, it should be noted that on wet surfaces, there have been observations of limitations in traction and cornering grip.


**Bridgestone Potenza Sport** has established itself as a premium summer tyre with a focus on performance. Labelled as a UUHP (Ultra Ultra High Performance) tyre, it has been rigorously tested by Autobild and other organizations in sizes ranging from 225/40 R18 to 265/35 R19. It shines particularly on wet surfaces offering excellent handling qualities, high grip levels, and short braking distances. Despite its prowess in wet conditions and energetic dry surface performance, a slight increase in road noise has been noted. Yet, this tyre's efficient rolling resistance and moderate pricing have made it a favorable option for many.


**Bridgestone Turanza T005** is another tire that holds a prestigious place in Bridgestone's summer line-up, geared more toward touring. It has been proven across multiple tests by Sport Auto, Autoklub ČR, Tyre Reviews, and ADAC, displaying a reliable performance across sizes like 205/55 R16 to 215/40 R18. Highlighted for its grip on both wet and dry surfaces, low rolling resistance, and good comfort levels, the T005 faces critique only in the domain of handling at the limit. Nonetheless, its overall balanced performance, coupled with high efficiency and an environmental consciousness, have made it a highly recommended tire for those seeking a blend of reliability and performance.


The detailed test results and reviews of these Bridgestone summer tyres reflect their ability to cater to a wide range of driving preferences and conditions. Whether you prioritize performance, comfort, or fuel efficiency, Bridgestone offers a well-tested solution to accompany you on your summer journeys.
