Bridgestone Turanza EL42

The Turanza EL42 is a Gr& Touring All-Season tire designed for sports sedans & sports coupes. It was developed to blend some of the looks & handling of a performance tire with the low noise & ride comfort associated with a passenger tire, as well as provide year round traction, even in light snow.
On the outside, the Turanza EL42 features a symmetric tread design with lateral & circumferential tread grooves aligned to evacuate water out from under the tire's footprint to enhance wet traction & reduce hydroplaning. The resulting rectangular tread blocks are siped to provide additional snow biting edges & are combined with an all-season tread compound to provide traction on dry, wet & light snow-covered roads. Internally, the Turanza EL42 features twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to stabilize the tread area & enhance treadwear, handling & high-speed capability. The Turanza EL42 features a polyester cord body to provide a smooth ride.
Bridgestone Turanza EL42 tire's sidewall styling features subtle black letters reversed out of a circumferential serrated band. They are H- or V-speed rated depending upon application & available in 65-, 60- & 55-series sizes for 15" & 16" wheel diameters.
