Bridgstone A/T 693 , great tyres on and off road .
Purchased a new Isuzu dmax in june of 2016 which came with these tyres on it from brand new . 3 months after purchasing vehicle new , done a trip up to nt , Kakadu, Kimberleys , dirt , corrigations , sand , water crossings , never missed a beat or got one puncture on these tyres . Maintain correct tyre pressures which I run @ 40 psi , rotate tyres every 10000 klm at service interval , and a 12 month wheel alignment I think is a must for long wear tyre life . Vehicle now has done just under 55000 klms , and I am hoping to get at least ...100000 klms out of them. Previous vehicle I had to this one was a hilux which had the Bridgestone 623 tyres on it , another great high klm wearing tyre , and ive had Bridgestone a40 tyres on a motorcycle I had with great wear out of them as well . Cant understand the comments about loud tyre noise on the road from these tyres ? No road noise from mine . I will definitely be getting another set when these arnt legal . Safe motoring .
Purchased in June 2016.
Questions & Answers
Hi just wanting to know if I am able to turn my duellers the opposite direction so that the black side of the tire is showing instead of the white or will this mess up the tread pattern? Cheers
Hi, How are you just a quirey I have. At the moment on my 200 series LandCruiser IV got Bridgestone Duelers A/T 697 285/70/r17. Is there any difference between the 693 to the 697 series
Hi John , they are virtually both the same A/T tyres , but the 697 series have a different tread pattern then the 693 series , and the 697 series are usually cheaper at purchase time due to being a more common A/T tyre with more sales compared to the 693 series , so the 697 series can be purchased cheaper normally . Check with your local Bridgestone Service Tyre Centre if you need more information regarding the differences between the 693 and the 697 series tyres .

Is rotation direction important with Dueler A/T tyres? should these tyres be fitted left and right handed with tread blocks on sides slanting toward rear at top?
I have been told you have to rotate every 10000 Klms ? .I went around Australia and did 27000klms and not once did I have to rotate my tyres (which were Bridgestones) but with the new car and brand new tyres I was told to replace them after 14000klms and after after fighting with the dealer and Bridgestone and court action I finally got some action,the dealer came good .As to rotation I think maybe when you get a service done it should be compulsory with the dealer or your service centre.Sorry i can't be much help
