Turanza Serenity Plus tires have been designed for drivers of mid-level and premium luxury coupes, sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles. Offering a longer treadlife than it's predecessor, this new offering from Bridgestone now provides the following options and features:

  • 80,000-mile treadlife warranty on H-rated options
  • 75,000-mile treadlife warranty on V-rated tires
  • 50,000-mile treadlife warranty on W-rated options
  • 30 Day Buy & Try Guarantee

Building on the previous Serenity model, the Turanza Serenity Plus adds greater snow traction and lower rolling resistance, which contributes to better fuel economy. The tire also molds a high silica percentage reinforced, Long Link Carbon Black tread compound into an asymmetric design. Resonance Noise Attenuated (RENOA) silencer grooves are designed to reduce acoustic tones. Continuous center and shoulder ribs further enhance noise suppression while providing constant contact with the road for better straight-line stability.

Providing Bridgestone's ultimate in luxury, elegance and comfort, the tire blends long wear with dry, wet and wintertime traction.

It's really a toss-up between these two tires currently the Serenity Plus is the highest rated overall Grand Touring All-Season tire but the results can fluctuate every week depending upon the customer service feedback for that week. This week the Serenity Plus has a 8.6/10 for Noise Comfort and the MXV4 has a 8.8/10. However, the Serenity Plus is ranks higher in 7 other areas which makes it the number one rated overall. I have attached a link below which will so the customer feedback as of today:

On the subject of tires with the lowest road noise, would the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus be a good choice for a current year Nissan Frontier V6 King Cab 4x2?

Warran W., The Turanza Serenity Plus is a passenger car tire and not typically available in truck fitments. What size are you currently using on the Frontier? -- marshall@tirerack.com

Own a 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander which has terrible noise in the cabin when on freeway. Can't hear the radio unless really turned loud. Size is P225/55/R18..what tire would you recommend.
Friday, February 12, 2016 by Tire Rack Team

Alice, We would recommend a touring style tire to keep noise levels down. In your size, check out the Michelin Premier A/S: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=Premier+A%2FS&partnum=255HR8PREAS&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes&affiliate=GF3

I have a 2013 Jetta SE. I just put new Michelin Premier A/S and hate them. The road noise is horrible. Will the Bridgestone Turenza Serenity Plus be quieter and still give me good handling in rain and light snow? I do about 35k highway per year.

Peter, The two tires have similar comfort rating in our consumer ratings and our testing here did not find either tire to be noticeably loud. The Bridgestone is also an all-season tire so it would be acceptable to run in the rain and the snow however it will not be as good as the Michelin.

Which tire would you recommend for a 2007 Hyundai Sonata?

Are you looking for an all-season, winter or summer tire? What part of the country do you live in?

Driving 2015 Honda CR-v EXL, tire size 225/65R17. Current tires now have 39,000 miles and may have a few thousand mile tread life, left on them. However, began experiencing growing road noise inside the cabin for at least the last 10,000 miles. Looking for replacement tires, focus is comfort, tread life and reduce road noise. Live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Texas area. Most driving is freeway. I am 65 years old and drive slow (hyper miler). Interested in what you would recommend. I am comfortable with a price range of $500 to $700 for set of 4.

I would consider the Continenal True Contact, a quiet comfortable tire with low rolling resistance and long treadlife 90K and in your price range: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?message=singleSize&tireMake=Continental&tireModel=TrueContact&width=225%2F&ratio=65&diameter=17&partnum=265TR7TRUEC&affiliate=GU9

Sorry I'm just now seeing the response. For the 2007 Hyundai Sonata I am looking for an all season tire. I have narrowed it down to Turanza Serenity Plus, the Premier A/S, and they Turanza EL 400-02. I want something to minimize road noise, I'm not sure how much the tires will help though.

I would like the smoothest riding and quietest tire for a 2006 Mercedes Benz e350 appearance package. The ones I have now are way too loud.

Please help very confused. Old comments a lot of reviews.
Tuesday, August 8, 2017 by Tire Rack Team


Tires can make a difference in ride quality. The Premier A/S would be my first choice of those, a little quieter and better wet traction and highest overall rated in it's category. -- seth@tirerack.com

If you have the 245/45R17 on your car, then I would recommend the Pirelli Cinturato P7 AS Plus: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Pirelli&tireModel=Cinturato+P7+All+Season+Plus&partnum=445HR7CP7ASPXL&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes&affiliate=GU9

Have 2017 Lexus nx200t. Worst road noise of ANY car I have ever owned. HaveYokohama standard size tire on 18" wheel. Help! Tempted to sell and eat the financial loss to get something quieter.
Tuesday, August 29, 2017 by Tire Rack Team


The quietest tire for your Lexus is the Michelin Premier LTX. I would expect that should solve your problem, you are not the only one with that complaint on the Original Equipment tires: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=Premier+LTX&partnum=26HR8PRLTX&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes&affiliate=GU9

Looking for the most comfortable tire possible for a mazda5. Lots of bumps in my area. Going with 16" (either 205/55r16 or 195/60r16) Can't decide between the Cint p7 AS Plus vs the Serenity Plus. From one of the tirerack editor reviews with the bmw, they had the bridgstone surpassing the p7+ in comfort/wet .
I'm wondering if this is still the case (the winter update did not include the serenity+ ? )

I'm also wondering if the trade off of worse wet traction for better dry handling is worth it. I like to hug corners, but I'm getting old and think I might prefer comfort. Also considering an extra inch of track with et40 rims.

Halllp me

These two tires are among the best on the road today and you cannot go wrong either way. The Pirelli is the more comfortable and quiet of the two by a very small margin but it is better: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Pirelli&tireModel=Cinturato+P7+All+Season+Plus&partnum=055HR6CP7ASPV2&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yesaffiliate=GU9

I owned 2012 honda civic lx variant. Could you suggest a good tire which can help to reduce the noise level down especially when i drive in cement ?.
Thursday, December 14, 2017 by Tire Rack Team

Nidhin: The Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus is still one of the quietest tires in this size. Click here for current pricing: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Bridgestone&tireModel=Turanza+Serenity+Plus&partnum=965HR5TSP&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes&affiliate=GU9 The Michelin Premier AS would be the highest overall rated tire considering traction, as well.
