NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Bridgestone Americas Inc. has debuted the Bridgestone Turanza QuietTrack touring tire that offers controlled driving in wet and snow conditions.
The tire is backed by an 80,000-mile limited mileage warranty.
"The Turanza QuietTrack tire is packed with the latest game-changing innovation from Bridgestone," said Erik Seidel, president, consumer replacement tire sales in the U.S. and Canada for Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. "Based on consumer insights, we know wet, winter and wear performance are the top considerations for drivers purchasing a new set of tires. The Turanza QuietTrack tire exceeds expectations in each of these important attributes, while also providing a comfortable, quiet ride."
The Bridgestone Turanza QuietTrack offers 20 percent improvement in wet traction and 44 percent improvement in snow traction over its predecessor, the Turanza Serenity Plus, the company said.
The Turanza QuietTrack tire is engineered with four new Bridgestone technology packages:
- QuietTrack Technology, a noise-dampening technology exclusive to Bridgestone to prevent high-frequency noise and ensure a quieter ride;
- ComfortCruise Technology, which leverages a rounded contact patch and optimized tire casing shape to reduce road vibration for a smoother, more comfortable ride;
- HydroTrack Technology that uses full-depth tread grooves and open shoulder slots to improve water evacuation and reduce the risk of hydroplaning; and
- EdgePerformance Technology, a proprietary, full- depth tread designed to maintain performance across its 80,000-mile life span.
The tire is available in 37 sizes, covering more than 86 percent of cars on the road.
