  1. Looking to replace Bridgestone Turanza LS-H tires. What should I get?

    New Member Introductions
    I've got a 2001.5 Passat with Bridgestone Turanza LS-H tires (195/65HR15). Had some Michelin Energy MVX's before that. Looks like the Turanza LS-H's are no longer made. I'm looking for a similar all-season tire. I'm not crazy about racing performance tires, etc. Just a premium/high-end tire...
  2. Turanza LS-H vs. Primacy MXV4

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I'm about to put 215/60/15s on my B5 variant. I've decided to go with grand touring/low performance all-season tires. I wanted a symetrical tread pattern with at least a 50k warranty, so I narrowed my search down to these two: Bridgestone Turanza LS-H: 50k warranty, tried and true...
  3. Potenza G009 vs. Turanza LS-H

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Switched from the Turanza LS-H to the Potenza G009. . Better Looks, Treadwear has been good, Quiet (no audible difference), Lower Price and for the handling - well I just can't tell the difference. . Running 205/55/16 Borbet CA - 1.8T Manual . My recommendation for the average joe.
  4. Turanza LS-H

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I just had a set of Turanza LS-Hs installed. As other people have posted, I have seen a significant drop in fuel economy. I’m also experiencing very noticeable tread noise and rolling resistance. For those of you who are using the same tires – do these conditions get any better over time...
  5. Just got a set of Bridgestone Turanza LS-H installed -- have important questions!

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Yesterday, I finally had my stock Michelin Energy tires replaced with Bridgestone Turanza LS-H tires that had to be special ordered. I had Sears do the mounting, balancing, etc. I am a newbie when it comes to wheels and tires, so these questions may seem very simple to you enthusiasts/experts...
  6. Bridgestone Turanzas LS-H - Total Replacement $500 - Rip-off?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I have been shopping around various car service centers where I work to try and find the best deal on the Bridgestone Turanzas LS-H that I have decided I will put on my car once it's time to replace my current tires (which is very soon). The cheapest place I found was the MasterCare Car Service...
  7. Replacing OE Michelin Energy MXV4 Plus tires, Bridgestone Turanza LS-H a good option?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I have a 2001.5 Passat GLS 1.8T sedan. I've now come to the point where I need to replace its tires. One option is to replace all four tires with the same type that came with my car - Michelin Energy MXV4 Plus. On the other hand, I checked The Tire Rack and found what I think may be better...

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I am finally replacing my stock tires with something new and was wondering about the Bridgestone Turanza LS-H. Is anyone running these tires or had experience with them on other cars? If you don't like the Turanzas then what would you recommend? THanks! kypassat
  9. I love my new Bridgestone Turanza LS-H tires on Adelaides!

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    After much research and deliberation, last week I swapped my stock 15" steel rims with Continental CH-95's @26k mi. for Adelaide 15" alloy rims and Bridgestone Turanza 195/65R15 tires. My Passat is a 2001 V6 manual with stock suspension. Over the weekend I drove over 500 miles to Mono Lake and...
  10. Bridgestone Turanza LS-H vs. LS-T

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    My wife's 1999 Passat calls for a 195/65-15 H rated tire. After reading this forum, I have decided on the Turanza. Nither my wife nor I are aggressive drivcers. Most all driving is 5 - 10 miles around town, with a few occasional trips of ~350 miles. Is there any reason I shold not...

  13. Toyo Proxes TPT or Turanza LSH in winter, anyone?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Anyone can comment on the above tires for snow traction? Planning to run 205/60-15 on stock 15x6 steel rims. I am having a hard time to find a all season tire that has decent winter traction for my V6 B5 in that size with 91 load index and H rated or above.
  14. Bridgestone Turanza LS-H?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Anyone have experience with these tires? I'm considering them, not for my Passat, but for the wife's Taurus. Looking for something that will be good in rain and occasional light snow, fairly quiet and smooth riding. Decent handling would be nice too, but it's not at the top of the list. These...
