Bridgestone Turanza ER300 Ecopia Reviews (newest first) - Page 1

Given 77% while driving a Vauxhall Astec (215/50 R17 V) on mostly country roads for 0 easy going miles
Fitted to Astra at new front lasted 12000 miles rear ones still have 5 mm at nearly 25000 miles, Garage fitted Uni Royal
Rainsport 3 on front at 12000 now having to change these due to wear at 25000 miles. Trying out Goodyear and keeping my figures crossed. No noticeable difference in car characteristics between any of the tyres all very good with braking and traction. wet or dry. Uni Royal were noticeable noisier on front than Bridgestone

Given 43% while driving a Audi 1.8T Quattro (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 10 miles
I bought my Audi A6 (only one owner) and the front tyres were down to 2.5mm and 3mm back were 4.5mm. The car was 1 year old with 12000miles on the clock. I thought these had been thrashed big time. However I got Audi to put two new tyres on so ~8mm. I just got my first MOT two days ago and the tyres are all 3mm. So that was these tyres doing 10,000Miles!! So again severe tyre wear?? Performance is average in the dry and not very good in the wet. My last Audi A6 had Mitchelin R17 205 tyres and lasted 2 1/2 years with double the mileage I have completed with the same wear! Wouldn't buy these again!!

Given 87% while driving a Skoda Yeti 4 x 4 (225/50 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 3,000 spirited miles
Anyone with a skoda yeti on 17" wheels using the original dunlops should take some notice (I cant believe anyone finds it acceptable). I looked and looked for someone using this bridgestone touring tyre on a yeti but no one has. I put bridgestones on my 2 other cars in the family, the old Fabia VRs and MR2 MK3, though the MR2 its potenza and can vouch that they are the best I have experienced and I have used many brands over the years. MR2 is a bit dangerous on anything else (near limits which I exploit) and the fabia was totally transformed and improved in every aspect on the er300.
I digress, but I really wanted some assurances that I wouldnt make the ride even worse on the yeti by putting an untried tyre on it. The ride is too hard on the 17" wheels but it is compounded by a really odd tyre choice by the oem. The dunlop is as hard as glass! though they last and dont want them too. The side walls also crack (probably down to such hard rubber). I was very near to buying a smaller set of alloys for the yeti to get a better ride but with the bridgestones, its not totally changed the car, but its a worthy ride improvement without a wheel change. You will see from the other 2 cars, I like firm riding cars so I dont think I am a picky one trying to improve on the dunlops.
Dunlops in the dry gripped really well, I don't see any loss in the bridgestone. In the wet the bridgestone is better and in all the rain we have had have never lost traction.(yes its 4x4 but I include aquaplaning in that statement)
The ecopia bit.... not sure. Its the same mpg I ever had. I only went ecopia because I couldnt find the 94W load/speed rating in the standard tyre. Id say it neither gives nor takes anything away comparing them to the standard ones on the fab.
I would suggest that these are the best tyre pound for pound at about £120 a corner, most importantly I doubt there is anything better suited to the yeti on 17" wheels. Anyone with a yeti knows the party piece is it corners hard and fairly flat, you loose none of that!
Buy with confidence. I wouldnt swap them for anything at any price
