If you're in the market for a new set of tires, the Bridgestone Turanza EL450 RFT might be just what you're looking for. These tires are designed to provide a comfortable ride while also providing good handling and performance in wet weather. Let's take a closer look at what these tires have to offer.

Bridgestone Turanza EL450 RFT 

The Bridgestone Turanza EL450 RFT (AR) is a tire made for passenger vehicles and SUVs to travel during any season. Some sizes manufactured are meant for high performance. These tires are filled with nitrogen to maintain the tire pressure and provide a smooth, quiet ride. 

The tread pattern is made up of three main grooves for optimal performance in wet weather. It also has small sipes all over the tread surface to allow for more biting edges that help grip the road during wet or snowy conditions.

The tire's all-season compound and detailed tread elements provide better dry, wet, and winter weather grip on the road surface. The durable compound helps keep rubber flexibility in summer and winter conditions by using stronger materials. Siping (making small slits) and notch placement create extra biting edges for increased grip on roads while hydroplaning resistance is improved with four circumferential grooves that disperse water and slush from the footprint.

The Bridgestone Turanza EL450 RFT tires feature 17-20 sizes, starting with 225/50 R17 94V SL and ending with 245/45 R20 99V SL. With their all-season compound, improved wet grip, and better snow traction, these tires can provide a confident and comfortable ride in any season. The Bridgestone Turanza EL450 RFT is a great option for those who want to enjoy a safe and smooth drive no matter what the weather throws at them.

 

They are manufactured in Japan and Poland which is why there are two different labels: the “AR” label on tires made in Japan and the “RFT” label on tires made in Poland. Both types of tires offer great quality and maximum performance no matter what kind of weather you encounter. So if you're looking for a reliable set of all-season tires, the Bridgestone Turanza EL450 RFT is an excellent option to consider. Get ready to experience a comfortable journey - all year long!

The DriveGuard is Bridgestone's Grand Touring All-Season self-supporting replacement run-flat tire designed for safety-minded drivers whose vehicles* were not originally available with run-flat tires, as well as drivers looking for a longer wearing, better riding option to replace their vehicle's Original Equipment run-flat tires.

Featuring Bridgestone's latest run-flat technology, DriveGuard tires are designed to offer almost the same riding comfort as conventional tires while providing temporary extended mobility for a distance of 50 miles at up to 50 mph even after a puncture has allowed complete air pressure loss. DriveGuard tires can help drivers better manage their busy schedules by avoiding becoming stranded in a rural area, on a crowded expressway or in inclement weather because of a flat tire.

DriveGuard tires are also designed to provide year-round driving flexibility by offering predictable handling, traction and control on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.

DriveGuard tires mold a silica-enhanced all-season tread compound into an asymmetric tread design that blends predictable handling and cornering stability with long wear and all-season traction. Circumferential and cross grooves help evacuate water to resist hydroplaning while engineered sipes increase the number of biting edges to enhance wet road and wintertime traction.

The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon on top of a rayon cord casing that features reinforced sidewalls to temporarily support the vehicle after a puncture causes a loss of air pressure. Bridgestone's NanoPro-Tech Sidewall reinforced rubber compound is molded into sidewalls that feature a sophisticated Cooling Fin Design to blend run-flat performance with a lighter-weight construction that doesn't sacrifice as much ride comfort.

*Vehicles must be equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

*Specific sizes utilizing eco-focused manufacturing methods are identified as such on the Sizes tab, as well as on the tire's Specs tab.

Treadwear Performance

N/A
N/A

Treadwear is vital to many things, not just how often the tires need replacement. Hydroplaning and wet weather are both critical factors that wear down your tire quickly. The warranty covers any defects in what you bought but only for a limited period or when there's minimal tread left on them.

Wet Perfomance

N/A
8.2

The wet performance score is a new thing that tire manufacturers are trying to achieve. The hydroplaning resistance, wet traction, and steering response all influence this new grading system.

Hydroplaning Resistance
i

The hydroplaning resistance is measured by the hydroplane depth test and the dynamic aquaplaning test, which measures how much water can be accumulated on the tire's surface before hydroplaning occurs.

8.1
Wet Traction
i

Wet traction estimates the level of grip on wet pavement. Tread design with deep grooves dramatically improves confidence when driving in the rain as they channel the water out much better.

8.2
Steering Response
i

The vehicle's steering response largely depends on the tread depth, tire width, air pressure, and aspect ratio. Wide high-performance tires are equipped with a continuous center rib providing instant steering response.

8.4

Dry Perfomance

N/A
8.4

Tires with good dry performance should be able to perform smoothly and safely, even when cornering aggressively.

Cornering Stability
i

A dynamic cornering test is often used to assess cornering stability under dry conditions.

8.4
Dry Traction
i

Dry traction level depends on many factors, including tread design, profile shape, and compounds.

8.4
Steering Response
i

The vehicle's steering response largely depends on the tread depth, tire width, air pressure, and aspect ratio. Wide high-performance tires are equipped with a continuous center rib providing instant steering response.

8.4

Comfort Perfomance

N/A
7.9

The comfort performance score is designed to measure the balance between ride quality and noise level.

Ride Quality
i

The excellent ride quality means you do not feel the bumps or cracks on the road. Larger tires with thick and deep tread patterns decrease the number of jolts allowing you to glide over bumpy road textures.

7.9
Noise
i

If you would enjoy a quiet chat with the passengers while children are sleeping or listening to music, not the sound of tires, definitely pay attention to the noise score.

7.9

Winter Performance

N/A
5.8

Winter Performance score helps us understand if the tire is the appropriate option for winter conditions that your vehicle will face. Dedicated winter tires provide a firm grip when driving through snow and on ice. Performance winter tires boast a higher speed rating and better handling but deliver modestly lower ice and snow traction.

Light Snow Traction
i

Snow traction is the ability of a tire to push snow out of its path. When driving on packed snow, tires with good snow traction will help you accelerate and maintain control.

6.6
Deep Snow Traction
i

Deep Snow Traction test results compare how the tires deal with the deep snow. To successfully cope with the job, such tires should feature aggressive tread patterns, a tremendous amount of siping, and most elastic compounds.

5.5
Ice Traction
i

Ice traction tires feature ice grip and build friction when using the brakes or steering wheel to get through icy surfaces safely.

Tire size may be indicated in two formats:
– metric (P255/45R18 103H)
– high flotation (30x9.5 R15 104 F C)
In the metric system, P - stands for the passenger vehicles (LT - for Light Trucks, ST - Special Trailer) with a width of 255 millimeters, aspect ratio (sidewall height) equal to 45% of the tire height. R means it is radially constructed with a diameter of 18 inches. 103 denotes the tire's load index and H determines the speed rating.
In the high flotation system, the first number (30) is the overall diameter of the tire, the second number (9.5) is the width in inches.
