Whats the issue with the Bridgestones ?

Our CX3 has them ( Turanzas)

Thanks
Personally, I've had them on other vehicles (Bridgestone Potenzas), they last for ages because they are fairly hard, but because of their hardness they were awfully noisy - something the CX-3 can well do without, at least the earlier models and I understand others on the forum have had the same issues.
Will ask the better half if she has noticed it ( i have only been in the car once when we picked it up haha )
Given they have only done 5K miles, might be hard to justify binning them unless the noise is that bad.
Cheers for feedback anyway bud.

Toyo are currently fitted, have not had an issue with them, 24000 mls, so not complaining, just willing to try something different if there is anything out there.
I'd stick with the Toyo's myself, it's funny Strangways mentioned the constant correcting because when we first had the car we noticed the same thing, but as we got used to the car we became less aware and now we don't feel there is a problem... weird?
I'm sure I would have got used to it if I only drove the CX3, but as I'm out in the MX5 at every opportunity it was noticeable every time I got back into the CX3.

I also have access to other vehicles and still have no problem with the CX-3 now - how weird?!? :? Tyre pressures?? Who knows? Never mind eh. 8-)

It's possibly the particular roads I use the CX3 on that have emphasised it more. Not an issue with the new model though :D
