Audi has selected the Turanza T005 as original equipment for the new Audi A7 Sportback.

The tire combines a high-silica compound incorporating Bridgestone’s Nano Pro-Tech polymer, with a special tread design said to provide high grip in the wet, while also maximizing the lifespan of the tire and fuel efficiency.

Drivers can select from sizes between 17in and 21in. For these sizes, the tire is equipped with the B-Silent technology, which minimizes in-vehicle noise on all road surfaces.

By integrating an open-cell polyurethane foam element applied to the inner surface of the tire, this technology works directly to reduce the tire air cavity resonance produced by the air vibration, further reducing cabin noise.

Christophe de Valroger, VP original equipment, Bridgestone EMEA, said, “With the Turanza T005, Bridgestone is continuing to demonstrate an innovative approach to tire technology and driving safety.

“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 tire of choice for the new A7.”
