Bridgestone Dueler A/T 697

Priced in the premium range in the offroad tyre market, a good allround onroad / offroad tyre performs well in the dry both on and off road but lacks grip in the wet on the bitumen. Expect to get good mileage out of this tyre which has an L/T rating with a heavy duty casing. Road noise is minimal and handling is slightly better with the stiffer L/T side walls. Tread is self cleaning in heavy mud/clay conditions. Show details

Tyres up to the task

Best all round ture I have used in a very long time. We have just completed a 5 month trip across Australia and along the southern coast line taking us to some remote locations. Not once were we let down by these tyres and a big bonus is we didn't have to replace or repair any damage unlike on some other brands we have used. We covered various road surfaces from sand and gravel to black top with some wet weather to boot. These tyres handled all conditions extremely well. Our set up is a 79 series cruiser towing a 3.5 tonne fully off road caravan, not one for the cheap and nasty tyres as they would not have been able to match the performance of the BRIDGESTONE, we entrusted our life's with the BRIDGESTONE tyres. Show details

Excellent all round performance

Fitted Light truck version to a new Prado GLX in 2021, 55,000km later still got 10-15,000km left on them, brilliant in the wet, & gravel roads, only downside is noise. They howl when over 50% worn, small price to pay though for drama-free driving. Also fitted these to a 2019 HiLux SR5 from new, got 82,000km out of first set, prior to that a 200 series. Best all round tyre for Australian conditions, pity they don't make the size for my 300 series! Show details

Very Good

Just changed tyres after 90000km. Can't fault the the Bridgestone LT265/65 17 on my Triton. Fairly quiet for an A/T tyre. Great wear and dry traction on and off road. Got a little slippery in the wet at the end of their life. Best tyre I have had. Show details

Questions & Answers

Hello Mates Down Under,

Greetings from the Philippines!

I truly appreciate your reviews of the Bridgestone Dueler AT 697, especially since you have utilised them in the rough road environment Oz is famous for. When we began running an Isuzu Alterra (the ute version of the DMAX) back in 2011, it came stock with Dueler's, and even though we neglected rotating them consistently, they lasted a good 10 years and 60,000kms without one flat! I should have known better having had such a positive experience with the Duelers, for I replaced all 4 with Yokohama Geolander H/T's (made in Philippines) which functioned fine for the first 40,000kms. Thereafter, I began to get flats from nails, and yesterday on a highway, going about 90km/hour the right rear suddenly burst with a deep slash from rim to tread, and the tread starting to peel off! Had nitrogen in it, and I have no idea what I struck, or if it simply burst on its own? So I'm bent on replacing them with Dueler A/T's.

So my question is, given I do not drive off road but on tarmac, would the tread on the A/T's wear faster than on H/T's?

Cheers!

Carlos

I believe Bridgestone tyre are great doesn't matter A/T or H/T still pretty good
But I would choose the A/T tyres tread depth was better and tougher also they are designed for 4wd and normal road

what is the difference between a D697 118S and 116S or OWL off road tyre

Troy
Troy  

That my friend is the weight and speed ratings.

116 means it can hold 1230kg / tyre
118 means it can hold 1320kg / tyre

The S means speed rated to 180km/h
