This is awesome news. First, you can get a premium tyre with a solid warranty backing it. Second, a lot of these sizes have only been available with dealers in runflats (which I hate). Good to see premium rubber in premium sizes available officially.

Of course, you could always buy from TireRack (related thread) and it might work out cheaper too, but without the speed, convenience & warranty of locally sourced tyres.

LOL! For those running a staggered setup (like my car), it means having different tyres front & back . Why couldn't they offer both sizes in the same model. Looks like I'll have to go the TireRack way.

How I wish 195/60 R15 was also available. Currently using primacy 3st in that size for my vento. Hopefully looking at the response they may launch later.

Usually, the scross owners upgrade to Michelin Primacy 3 ST, now Turanza T001 is also an available option in the stock size - 205/60R16. Was anybody able to get a price list (street price) for these tires? A ballpark figure would be fine.

The official page for T001 - http://www.bridgestone.co.in/Pattern.aspx?pattern=54
The official page for S001 - http://www.bridgestone.co.in/Pattern.aspx?pattern=55


PS : All available patterns can be seen here - http://www.bridgestone.co.in/selectTyreByPattern.aspx

Unfortunately - I would still choose the MC5 s based on these reviews.

Oh that's a good news. Potenza S001 was the oem tyre of my f30 320d. These tyres offer very good grip. But they are a bit hard and noisy. Lasted only 22000 km due to sporty driving

What is the feedback on the T001 Turanzas? Are they good enough for 40k?

The Turanza T001 are stock on the new C220d's, and after having them for a 1000kms I am honestly not that impressed.
Pushed the car a little hard yesterday for the first time, and the tyres just didn't seem very comfortable and there was minor swaying that was noticed.
The other day I hit a patch of water on the right side, and was surprised to see the car slide a bit before the electronics kicked in! Note: wasn't doing high speeds, and the water was the left over water that is spilt on the roads while watering plants!

Globally too, people don't seem that impressed with these tyres - especially on wet roads.

Safe to say - looking for an upgrade!

Has anyone got hold of Bridgestone Turanza T001 in 205/60 16 size or Turanza GR90 in 215/60 16? Looking forward to immediately replace the Stock Mrf's on my Titanium(O).

Dear All,

I need your quick & valuable inputs on the tyre selection for my Jetta 2.0 TDI.

My look out is to upgrade from stock Goodyear 205/55/16 to 215/55/16.

Currently I have the following options in-front of me for another 50K Kms.

1. Michelin Primacy 3 ST - ~14000/-
2. Bridgestone T001 - ~10000/-
3. MRF ZLO - ~8000/-

Since BS T001 kind of fits my pocket , I am really looking at expert inputs on the same from who have been using this for sometime. Also this is the reason I am using this thread.

If there are any other threads already available here , Kindly guide me there so that we save time.

Thank You.
Autosong.

My inputs on the T001 are below though I have the factory size for my Civic ie 195 65 R 15.

Went with PS4. Alignment at tyredrome cathedral road. Had to take the pain from Ambattur till there. It was well worth it though. There was only one tyre of S001 at bm Lal so had no choice.

One thing is that both the places spoil the steering wheel and inner door handle as well as the carpets with tyre dirt. Other than that work was acceptable.
