Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus
Initial Review: 185 miles on tires
June 25, 2012

WOW! For the price of a new set of tires I am driving a new car. My 2009 Volvo XC70 T6 has never handled so well. Not in the 27,000 miles of the soft, non-descript boulevard ride with the OEM Continental 4x4 Contacts. Not in the 225 miles of the better-but-bumpy, out-of-round Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires that were returned to the dealer for replacement after just two weeks. Now, with the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus tires, I have a car that is fun to drive -- like my 2005 Subaru Outback GT of seven years ago. Who knew that the Volvo could handle so well. On the straight away the tires track true and feel rock-solid, with virtually no correction input needed. On sweeping Interstate on-ramps taken at high speed -- 70 mph+ -- the tires feel so steady, secure and planted that it would take a giant crowbar to break them loose. On the few runs at 85 mph I have never felt more confident. The bottom line: in the previous 27,000 miles driving the Volvo was simply something I did; now, with the new Turanza Serenity Plus tires on the car, driving is something I look forward to DOING!
