Bridgestone OE on Audi A7
Audi has selected the Bridgestone Turanza T005 as original equipment for the new A7 Sportback. According to Bridgestone, drivers of the four-door coupe will have the “full 17- to 21-inch range of Turanza T005 tyres available to them.”
The AO (Audi Original) marked tyre combines a high-silica compound that incorporates Bridgestone’s own NanoPro-Tech polymer with a tread design that aims to offer excellent grip in the wet while also maximising the lifespan of the tyre and fuel efficiency. Furthermore, Bridgestone has incorporated its B-Silent technology on the 19- to 21-inch Turanza fitments in order to minimise in-vehicle noise on all road surfaces; by integrating an open-cell polyurethane foam element applied to the inner surface of the tyre, this technology works directly to reduce the tyre air cavity resonance produced by the air vibration.
“With the Turanza T005, Bridgestone is continuing to demonstrate an innovative approach to tyre technology and driving safety,” says Christophe de Valroger, vice-president Original Equipment Bridgestone EMEA. “The Turanza T005 allows drivers to keep going and stay in control no matter what the driving conditions. As a trusted partner to Audi, we are especially proud to see the Turanza T005 serving as the tyre of choice for the new A7.”
