Bridgestone Buy 3 Tyres and Get The 4th FREE (Ecopia, Potenza, Turanza Serenity Plus or Supercat)

1060

Hello fellow OzBargainers,

Bridgestone is back again with Buy 3 tyres and get the 4th FREE

Available on Bridgestone Ecopia, Potenza, Turanza Serenity Plus or Supercat tyres.

If people could get quotes from various places with various sizes i'll keep an updated list below

On a side note, i however choose to go to Bridgestone Tyre Centre's even though they may be $20 more for a whole set for a few reasons:
- They torque my wheels up with a torque wrench instead of going to town with a impact gun
- They wrap their sockets in tape to prevent dings and paint chiping on wheels

and as user wongsun has stated:

They will warrant their tyres if you get a puncture, even it is in the side wall. The warranty is a pro rated replacement based on the wear of the existing tyre. For example if you get a side wall puncture and you have only used 20% of your tread on the tyre, they will replace the tyre at 20% of the original tyre cost. No other tyre retailers will do this to the best of my knowledge and this could save you a lot of money down the line. I have found the Bridgestone Tyre Centre pricing to be fairly competitive as well. Bridgestone & Firestone covered not supercats

    I just changed a set of 235/40R/18 Potenza and shop around. Even with the "Buy 3 get 1 deal" from Bridgestone, still work out more expensive than Costco.

      Costco had a promotion running too, but it ended on the 29th. see here

      •  

        I had the $100 off promo from Costco, even without it, their normal price still similar to Bridgestone buy3get1 deal.

      • +2 votes

        they usually have the buy 3 get 4 sale as it is a bridgestone sale and applies to all sellers. worth a look as it woudl probably pay for a costco membership on its own.

    Got a Bridgestone quote yesterday for re003 225/45/18. $279 per tyre ($299 rrp), got ktas to match 4 for 3 and made them $274 each.

    •  

      I also got the RE003 235/40/18 for around $675 at Costco, check with them.

      •  

        Thanks, got ktas to price beat Costco!

    •  

      I got the same tyre quoted $225 per tyre if it's not too late from bridgestone

      •  

        Basically the same as ktas came down to, assuming you mean x 4 tyres,but thanks for the heads up. My Bridgestone dealer was a tool when I asked for a good price…

        •  

          I've found like most tyre players the is huge variation, I called two bridgestone within 10km of each other for a tyre last month, one wanted $225, the other $295

          Edit: didn't see the Costco post, good on ya. You deserves to be on this site

    Anyone got any feedback on the Potenza RE003. Need new tyres for my Golf GTI and wondering if these are any good.

    •  

      Yes they are very grippy.

      •  

        are they durable??

        • +2 votes

          I've personally found them to to have good grip BUT they don't last long…

          They seem a little too soft and for me I feel the newer RE003 lasted less than the RE001 I think it was the first time round I got them. I personally will be looking for another brand/model the next time round and I'm very disappointed with the life of the RE003's.

        •  

          It's a soft compound tire, It won't last as long as other ranges but maybe around 25-35k km's, with balancing, etc. They are an awesome tire but not really suitable for daily use as they wear quicker than other tires. They're good on my XW.

        •  

          @BarneyM8:

          I'm currently at about 20K and been told I need to replace, I had alignment and balance with install and again at 10K usage… now at 20K alignment and balance I'm told the rears are getting low and need replacing… not too happy… it seems the older RE001 or RE002 (could have been) were harder wearing and also seemed to have good grip…

          I'm just not sure I'm going to be dropping this amount of money on a product that does not last long.. I like a softer compound for better grip but these seem too soft for the average driver perhaps?

        •  

          @Jonc:

          They're pretty soft for the average driver you're right, They're more for a weekend car. I switched to the hankook ventus s1 nobles on my daily, perfect tire for it, Somewhat grippy and do well with the 200fwkw my mazda 3 mps makes.

          On my weekender i'm switching to ad08r's or michelin pilot sport 5's tbh, re003's don't cut it anymore, they're nice but they are not as good as the two i listed from what i've experienced.

        •  

          @BarneyM8:

          Thanks for the reply BarneyM8, I'll check out the Hankook Ventus S1 in future and might give them a try :-)

        •  

          I had a set of these on my Fiesta ST, to replace the original RE050a. They were a huge step up in wet performance and seemed to maintain their grip better throughout the life of the tyre (RE050a became quite bad as it wore down). Even with two rotations to keep the wear even, I only got 25,000km out of them, but that car was hilarious and a drove like a child. I liked them so much I just bought a set for my other car

    •  

      I've got them on an Impreza and a forester. Quiet and very responsive. Amazing grip around corners and in the wet. More of a high performance tyre so won't last as long but I personally feel they're worth it for the outstanding grip. Would buy again. I found Kmart price beat every time

    • +1 vote

      Another option are the Michelin Pilot Sport 4's. I was in the same position but opted for the PS4's after reading a few reviews. They're amazingly grippy, and I got them for only $215 each too which is fantastic (235/40r18).

    •  

      I put a set on my VE SV6 ute, replacing the original Bridgestone RE050. They certainly do grip very well as others have suggested and they've been quiet too. Honestly it felt like a new car again. Can't comment on wear but I place a priority on grip and safety over wear rates. I doubt you'll be disappointed. I'd buy them again.

    •  

      Use these on my car, grip is excellent. Longevity is varied, I've done about 25000km on mine and they're not even halfway to replacing yet

    Tempe Tyres still a better deal?

    •  

      Worst customer service and long wait times. I went to Taleb Tyres down the road who were able to special order particular sold out tyres.

      •  

        Get there early on weekends, or go there during the week. Can't help it if everyone from Sydney goes there. Customer service is fine to me. Just rock up, leave your details, pay and pick it up. They were even happy to swap the spare that was used on my

        I looked up Taleb Tyres. They're much more expensive than Tempe, and seem to have less stock. Don't even have Pirelli's in my size.

        •  

          Tempe: That wasn't my experience. I was told if I got there by 5pm it'll be fine, drove 1 & half hours in traffic got there at 4:50pm to only be told they didn't have time.

          Taleb price matched what I wanted, even sourced them within 5 days from someone else (even tho Michelin themselves said they were out of stock), I only paid for tyres, everything else was included including swapping a gutter rash rim for the spare, also loved the decor inside.

          Life experiences vary..

    Thanks OP. I've been waiting a while for this deal to come up again.

      is that $600 including 4th tyre free?

        I have a MY09 Subaru Impreza. I was quoted $200 per tyre, with the 4th tyre free.

    Great tyre. Purchased these a few years ago at full price and they are still going strong. Unbelievable grip on my Subaru Impreza

  •  

    I got three Bridgestone 215/55R17 Turanza ER33 tyres for $171 each fitted and balanced at Costco Majura Park yesterday. Bridgestone in Tuggeranong had quoted me $190 per tyre.

  •  

    We had a puncture in RE003 Adrenaline tyres half a year ago. It was near the side wall and could not be repaired. But Bridgestone Tyre Centre apparently started a program where, if your tyre is damaged, they will replace it and you only pay for what you used (which was about 15% of the thread for us). So all in all, can highly recommend them.

    •  

      I think this only applies when you get a full set of tyres, but is worthwhile

        Probably, but this deal is for a full set, unless you have 6 wheels on your car….

    Remember that different sizes attract different prices. Rare sizes are usually more expensive than the common "commodore" sizes, regardless of whether its more or less actual rubber.

      I've the Ecopia EP100 on my car now and they are not very good. Doesn't give me a confident grip, doesn't save petrol as it claims and it's very 'squeaky' — It 'squeaks' even when I'm doing a low speed U-turn on usual bitumen, which was never the case on stock fitted tyres. Fitted 10 months ago but have 2mm left.

      •  

        I second this!

      • +1 vote

        Just my advice, never buy economy tyres. In terms of grip and handling, they are crap. Under wet weather, they aquaplane and braking distance will take longer. If you are a Bridgestone fan, go with RE003. Being a soft compound rubber, it will wear out faster as the norm says. But that is subjective to the driving style and how often you rotate the tyres and how often you do a wheel alignment. I've done 70,000km in 4 years on my Michelin Pilot Sport 3 which has an average life span of less than 15-20k under spirited driving conditions. But if you go easy on it and do good maintenance, tyres will last a long time.

        •  

          With regards to this… I have the RE003s on my civic but have never bothered to rotate them. Should I? If so, do you go by kms or time? I don't really drive much so the car has done approx. 4000kms since I put the tyres on (however it's nearly been a year)

        • +1 vote

          @montorola: Yes, definitely do tyre rotation if you want to prolong the life of each tyre. I usually rotate each tyre by km which is 15,000. In your case, when it hits 15k do a wheel alignment too which is $55 on average and you can ask the guys to rotate it for you. So it's a good combo in terms of wheel maintenance.

        •  

          @Volution: quick question, alignment is required if you don't see any uneven wear on the tyres and the wheels go straight? if needs to do it regardless is it necessary to do 4 wheels or just front 2 is sufficient?

        •  

          @wtfnodeal: You might get away with 30k before a wheel alignment. The question is that do you want to take a risk of the uneven wear as it irreversible. Usually pot holes or hitting a kerb will upset the balance of the wheel alignment. Lastly, while you are doing wheel alignment, might as well do all 4 corners. I dont see the point of doing half the job as it is something you dont do often and cost money.

        •  

          @Volution: I don't know any good tyre shop does a good wheel alignment. The one I went to with my car came out worse than before it went in. Not only wasted $65 but also ended up paying $65 for another alignment done elsewhere which wasn't that good either.

      Check the size on your tyre, then ring up few shops and get some quotes. If you can't be bothered, call up Costco. They only stock bridgestone & Michellin, best brand you can get.

    Bridgestone Select Sandgate QLD

    Got quoted $300 per tyre for 235/45/18 98W to fit our Accord Euro and since it is a premium tyre, they have included wheel alignment with the price.

    I was then advised to get a wider tyre which still within spec at 245/45/18 98W which is a stock Commodore size apparently for $220 a tyre..

    I think I will go with the latter…

    • +2 votes

      Check with insurance to see if they cover the wider tyres.

      In NSW, if you are running the stock wheels that are listed on the placard or handbook, the regs say you must use the tyre size listed on the placard or handbook.

      • -1 vote

        Not true. There is flexibility on tyre width and diameter within limits without requiring certification. I saved a bundle replacing 215/50/17 with 235/45/17 given the latter is a much more common tyre.

        http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/documents/roads/safety-rules/stand...

        •  

          From the linked Specs in the Tyres section
          "If the wheels are listed on your car’s tyre placard or in the owners handbook then the tyres you fit must be those
          listed on the placard or in the handbook for these wheels."

          Are you getting confused between the wheel and tyre?
          It does say that "Wheels up to 26mm wider than the largest optional wheel recommended by the vehicle manufacturer for the
          vehicle can be fitted without the need to notify the RTA" but note that the wheel is the metal part only and does not include the tyre.

          So if you have the stock wheels, then you would be stuck with the stock tyre size. If you upgrade your wheels to a different size, you would be allowed to have wider tyres to suit the wider wheels.

  •  

    Good deal. I recently replaced my RE050s with the RE003 and they are a far superior tyre.

  •  

    235/35/19 $915 Fitting and Balancing

  •  

    Say if ktas can price match, are there any advantages to going bridgestone over ktas? I normally have picked ktas in the past as they offer free wheel rotations for the life of the tyre, and I'm really lazy in doing this. No idea if every tyre place just does this though.

    •  

      Have a look at Bridgestone benefits program. If you buy 4 tyres, you get free balance and rotation every few thousand KMs. Free puncture repair and few other benefits.

  •  

    I had the Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE003 225/45/17 on a Mazda MX-5 NC. Quoted for around $500 from BJ on the same deal last year, and price-matched from Bridgestone with alignment.
    Super grippy, and great ride quality. Yes, they don't last long but you can't have everything.
    Would totally recommend them for a front wheel drive, or for a RWD if you're not into drifting. For the MX-5, with the powerless engine, they killed the fun factor from the tail, but on windy roads they would compensate…

    Now I've gone to a Toyota 86, that have the Michelin Primacy HP, and they're quite ok.
    BJ have the RE003 at 235/45/17 at $169 which makes it around there at the $500 region for the 3+1.

    I am afraid that if I'll go with the RE003, they will kill the fun again, although the 86 is a bit more easier to drift than the MX-5.
    Can anyone suggest which Bridgestone tyre instead of the RE003 should I choose for that progressive drift?

    I personally dont consider the RE003 a real performance tyre. It seems to be a step below tyres like Michelin Pilot Sport 4 and Continental Contisport Contact 5 while being a similar price (before the buy 1 get 1 free deal)
    Wheels mag tested the RE003 in September and it came second overall but it was only against mid range tyres from other brands like the Continental Premium Contact 5. The other tyres in the test were Maxxis Premitra HP5, Laufenn S Fit EQ LK01, Kumho Ecsta HS51, Momo, Dunlop SP Sport Maxx 050, Goodyear Efficient Grip FP

    •  

      Not essential unless the tyre wear on your car is severely uneven or your car crab-walks sideways instead of forward.

      Think of it like your feet, putting shoes on by not tying up the laces/velcro/straps.

    Kmart was able to beat the cheapest price I had. None of the stores has stock at the moment (usual story with these tyres) but Bridgestone recently received stock and they will start distributing it to the stores now so it should be available within next 2-3 weeks.

  •  

    What's the noise like on the RE003?

  • +3 votes

    This has been mentioned in an earlier post, but I would recommend buying directly from a Bridgestone Tyre centre mainly for the following reason. They will warrant their tyres if you get a puncture, even it is in the side wall. The warranty is a pro rated replacement based on the wear of the existing tyre. For example if you get a side wall puncture and you have only used 20% of your tread on the tyre, they will replace the tyre at 20% of the original tyre cost. No other tyre retailers will do this to the best of my knowledge and this could save you a lot of money down the line. I have found the Bridgestone Tyre Centre pricing to be fairly competitive as well.

    •  

      Does this cost extra, or is this automatically applied when buying tyres from them?

    I was quoted 4 x Turanza Serenity Plus 215/55/17 for $537 - $179 per tyre by Bridestone Maribyrnong.
    Price matched in Bridgestone Coburg.

    Btw, do we have to get the wheel alignment everytime we replace the tyres? The guy, who did the replacement,said my car wheel alignment is still good.

      Wheel alignments aren't necessary everytime you change the tyre, if your last alignment was done a while back lets say a year or more then it's advised to as this allows even wear of the new tyres
