Questions and Answers for the Bridgestone Turanza T001 Evo

2017-07-26 - My car ..VW Jetta 2017 1.4 tsi fitted michelin energy plus 205/55/16/91v tyres. I wish to fit quieter tyres and after reading your reviews , I have narrowed my choice down to Bridgestone T001 evo or Goodyear egp tyres. [which i have used previously on a mazda 6] Are you able to advise which tyre is best for comfort and low in cabin noise?

The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance Dunlop Sport BluResponse are both well known for being quiet and comfortable. The Bridgestone Turanza T001 Evo is new so less tested, but is also scoring very well in noise and comfort scoring. Either tyre would be a good choice, but currently the Bridgestone Turanza T001 Evo looks to be the better overall tyre as it is newer.

2018-10-27 - Hi, I have just taken delivery of a brand new Golf VII Variant which came with 225/45R17 91W Bridgestone tyres from the factory. It says Turanza T001 on the side. How do I know if this is an EVO model or not?

I'm not certain, I thought some models had EVO on the sidewall but I'm not sure that's the case. You might have to email Bridgestone with the size and DOT codes and they can tell you.

Top 3 Bridgestone Turanza T001 Evo Reviews

(205/55 R16 V) on for 0 miles
Haven't done enough miles yet to give an accurate report, but suffice to say so far so good. Critically, how to tell a T001 Evo apart from it's forerunner, the T001? The new Evo has 4 longitudinal main grooves, whereas the original T001 only had 3 (as currently depicted.) Clear as day on Bridgestone's site, but agree, they should have added the word EVO to the side of the tyre for clarity's sake. Halfords autocentres didn't know either.

Given 90% while driving a Kia Motors ceed (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,500 easy going miles
These replaced OEM Kumho tyres and I've been impressed with them so far. My only criticism is of Bridgestone for bringing out a tyre called "Evo" but forgetting to brand the tyre sidewall with this name. The tyre fitting centre were unsure whether their supplier had given them an older T001 and even Bridgestone's own sales department admitted there wasn't a way to easily check whether a given tyre was a previous generation T001 or the T001 Evo.

Given 77% while driving a Toyota Avensis estate 1.8 petrol (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 2,000 easy going miles
An excellent tyre in both wet and dry conditions, highly recommended. Could be the best summer yet, but for one overwhelming niggle. Fuel economy. The 'EU' fuel rating for this tyre is 'C'. Very unsure how this rating was achieved - & this is my experience so far. It's also worth noting at this juncture that I only replaced 2 rear Dunlop BluResponse's, leaving 2 Michelin Energy Savers up front intact. Both these older tyres are 'B' rated for fuel.
On the open road, M and A roads, and generally taking it fairly easy, the T001 Evo's have proved fabulous, emulating the fuel economy of the Dunlop's, easily a 'B'. Well done Bridgestone.
In our corner of London however, the same cannot be said to be the case. Where before we would week-in week-out achieve 40mpg (via the car's computer) now we only achieve a careful 35 mpg at best, a 12.5% decline (and with the recent cold snap 33mpg has been the norm.) These latter figures are equivalent to Bridgestone's old ER30 and ER300 tyres, both of which we've had on this particular car in the past, and both of which are 'E' fuel rated.
35mpg would therefore suggest a D fuel rating?
So, have the EU raters balanced the two results out, 'B&D' resulting in an overall 'C' rating? Something feels amiss.
If you do a modicum of stop/start driving, anticipate a lower fuel rating. If you're out on the M/A roads, the tyre will excel. Bottom line, we do 9k miles p.a., and therefore over the life of the T001's at today's pump £prices and presuming a 25-30k tyre life, we will be spending an additional £500-600 in fuel alone, relatively small - but then so is our mileage compared to many. It would now simply be more cost effective to trade them in for either more Dunlop's, or a 'B' fuel rated alternative. Would I buy them again, or replace the Energy Savers with these T001 Evo's going forward? Unless Bridgestone manage to get them into the 'B' fuel bracket and pertinently, across all driving terrains/conditions, the answer is a definite NO (otherwise, would the fuel economy continue to further fall?) A really very good summer tyre nevertheless, potentially exceptional.

Latest Bridgestone Turanza T001 Evo Reviews

Given 70% while driving a Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 TS Veloce (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
I went with the T001Evos because at the time they were a good price. The only branded tyre of note which was cheaper was Avon ZV7. (Hankook, Pirelli and loads of supposedly mid range tyres were more.)

These Bridgestones have lasted 20k so far but only 5k on the front. Comparitively, I have found better wearing tyres as I seem to wear tyres quickly in the winter months. That must be a sign that I can get close to their limits. They are quiet, comfortable and stable and have performed largely well. I didn't go for the T005s as the T001 Evos are quieter. They ride nicely so could be a good choice for those who value comfort highly.

Outright cornering grip is ok and feedback is ok when it is remembered they are touring tyres. I find they lack bite into corners but strangely this subjectively improves with speed.

What I have found now they are just below 4mm tread depth on the front is that they trigger the ABS when even lightly check braking on smooth asphalt when there is a film of water. I hadn't noticed any great aquaplaning issues going straight or cornering but they are notably poor whilst braking. My point here is that over their lifetime, these tyres which are A rated for wet braking simply do not perform how their rating suggests. This has been something I've long noted in regards to how new European tyre labelling can be very misleading. To put this in some context, I've noted another family car which has 195/65R15 Yokohama C-Drive 2 tyres which are C rated are definitely superior in this respect (they also have 3.5mm of tread depth).

Right now, I have noted the Bridgestone's weak point and drive accordingly but it does mean I won't take the chance of running them right down simply because under certain conditions they will render the brakes ineffective.

It is a shame because I like Bridgestones for my motorbike but I concede Bridgestone were noted for having wet performance issues which were addressed with the T005s.

A way around this could be to move the tyres to the rear again but this could have safety implications (worn tyres are subjectively better in the dry, new tyres subjectively better in the wet- which is why I fit new pairs to the rear).

In short they are good but have a glaring shortcoming which is not typical of the rounded performance of tyres from a Premium manufacturer. They still may be a good buy providing people are aware and act accordingly AND the purchase price is towards the low end of the mid-range scale. All said and done, I think they are still considerably better than most low cost tyres which typically have major performance issues when worn.
