Bridgestone Tyre Sales (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Bridgestone Corporation, the world’s leading rubber and tyre company, recently announced the official launch of its Turanza T005A premium high performance tyre that is said to promise a smooth journey with first class comfort, superior quietness and assured safety.
Bridgestone says the Turanza T005A offers an ‘exceptionally comfortable driving experience’ for 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 optimised contact shape that ensures consistent contact pressure on the road to reduce shock and impact noise for better comfort.
It is also 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.
The Turanza T005A is already selected as original fitment by premium car brands and is being launched in selected markets across the Asia Pacific Region starting from first half 2018. It is available in 21 different sizes for Malaysia market.
