Features:

The Bridgestone EL42 4x4 tyres are part of Bridgestone’s premium Turanza range engineered to deliver an exceptionally smooth and quiet ride under any condition. Bridgestone Tyres officially describes the Turanza range as “the pinnacle of driving luxury”. The Bridgestone EL42 4x4 tyres are all season touring tyres for 4x4 sports saloons and sports coupes and enhance safety and ride comfort. The tyres are OE on some of the most luxurious saloons like the BMW 7 series and luxury CUVs like the BMW X3 and X5. Another popular Bridgestone tyre seen often as OE for luxury CUVs and SUVs is the Bridgestone D689 tyre.

Superior performance: The Bridgestone EL42 4x4 tyres are touring tyres. So they offer the best features of performance tyres (superior handling) and standard tyres (smooth and quiet ride). Additionally, they offer good grip and stability on dry and wet conditions.
Year round performance: The Bridgestone EL42 4x4 tyres have an all season tread that allows superior performance all year round including good grip and traction on light snowy surfaces. You can expect some cost savings because there is no need to replace the tyres when seasons change.

However the Bridgestone EL42 4x4 tyres are not suited for harsh winter driving through thick snow and ice. In any case, such severe winters require the use of specially designated winter tyre. (In some European countries, it is a legal requirement to switch to winter tyres).

The results delivered by the tyres are directly attributable to its innovative tread design as well as the specially developed tread compound. The unique all season tread compound forms a symmetric tread pattern in the Bridgestone EL42 4x4 tyres.The rectangular tread blocks on the tyre shoulder provide superior dry road stability and handling, giving greater control on the car. Sipes on the tread block are transformed into sharp snow biting edges in light snow. Lateral and circumferential grooves in tread centre evacuate water from under the tread effectively reducing the risk of aquaplaning. Thus your control and safety is assured in all road conditions.
