Comfort Above All – Bridgestone Malaysia Launches Turanza T005A

Designed for a Quieter, Safer & Smoother Journey

Turanza T005A

(1st June 2018, Subang Jaya) – Bridgestone Tyre Sales (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., a subsidiary of Bridgestone Corporation, the world’s leading rubber and tyre company today announced the official launch of its Turanza T005A premium high performance tyre that promises a smooth journey with first class comfort, superior quietness and assured safety.

Turanza T005A offers an exceptionally comfortable driving experience for both short and long distance journeys. This flagship tyre features variable pitch that reduces pattern noise and high-angle sipes that are fine-tuned to soften tyre impact on the road leading to less road noise. In addition, the improved tyre contact shape and reinforced sidewall help reduce vibrations. Through Bridgestone’s advanced tyre technologies and various on-the-road tests, Turanza T005A is designed and developed to be equipped with an optimized contact shape that ensures consistent contact pressure on the road to reduce shock and impact noise for better comfort. Turanza T005A has also been improved at the molecular level, with Bridgestone introducing an exclusive Nano Pro-Tech™ compound for this tyre. The new compound is engineered to strengthen the bond between silica and polymer to increase the contact area, resulting in reduced heat generation and energy loss, leading to better wet performance and safety. Lastly, chamfering on the tyre prevents deformation and ensures even contact with the road for improved braking performance.

Bridgestone Turanza T005A has already been selected as original fitment by premium car brands, and it will be launched in selected markets across the Asia Pacific Region starting 1H2018.
