TURANZA EL42

Standard Touring All-Season

Overall Rating (2.5)


A Grand Touring All-Season tire designed for sports sedans, sports coupes and selected SUVs. The Bridgestone Turanza EL42 is developed to blend some of the looks and handling of a performance tire with the low noise and ride comfort associated with a passenger tire, as well as provide year round traction, even in light snow.

Features a symmetric tread design with lateral and circumferential tread grooves aligned to evacuate water out from under the tire's footprint to enhance wet traction and reduce hydroplaning.
The rectangular tread blocks are siped to provide additional snow biting edges and are combined with an all-season tread compound to provide traction on dry, wet and light snow-covered roads.

Features twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to stabilize the tread area and enhance treadwear, handling and high-speed capability.
The Turanza EL42 features a polyester cord body to provide a smooth ride.

Comments Tires came with my Mazda when i bought it new. I never expected to have to change them so soon. I rotated regularly, kept them at correct pressure, but clearly not made to last.
