What should be my tire pressure?
Hi Bernard B.
I have had 2 sets of the Bridgestone A/T 697 and have always had my tyre rotations done at bridgestone tyre shops in different locations on my travels and all of the tyre shops have told me to run on 40 psi even when empty , I have a 2003 gu patrol with a tare weigh of around 2480 kg, I found the patrol always seem to have a harsh ride, when the tyres became very slippery in the wet I dropped the pressure to 35 - 36 psi to help with traction, that didn't really help with traction but I did notice the ride felt a little more comfortable. I have now fitted a new set of Toyo open country A/T to the patrol and the recommend tyre pressure is 34 to 36 psi and I can honestly say these tyres are comfortable as they also have more flex in the walls.
I recently had fitted and balanced 4 new Desert Dueler A/T 697 265/17 tyres to our Toyota 150 Prado. The car now shakes from 80kph thru to 110kph. The old tyres were the identical type but never made the car shake. Why do the new tyres cause the car to shake?
TBH, I wish I knew so they could be fixed on my 4wd too. My opinion is there is a manufacturing fault but Bridgestone do not care enough to admit it. I had several sets on my Triton (trying to fix the problem) and was told the last set now on the vehicle were specifically tested and were 'in spec'. I'm so annoyed everytime I drive over 100kmh the whole car shakes. In spec BS.
Is it good on snow? And snow/mud terrains?
Is Dueller AT 697 suitable for Toyota RAV 4?
I am sure there will be a size in the AT697 to suit a Rav4. 225/65/17 I think is the standard size you are after. Need to look at your tyre sticker that shows size, load and speed ratings for your vehicle.
I had a full set of AT 697s put on the Pajero about 12 months ago, but now find significant road noise has developed. Is this normal?

Hi Andyroo, I have had these tyres on my Pajero for 3.5 years now, done thousands of Kms in the outback towing a 1600 Kg Camper, had two punctures, one was a screw the other a nail, no real punctures while traveling . They are a little noisy, but the Paj diesel is pretty noisy anyhow so cant really hear them .. handle bitumen well and very good on dirt. Have done some hard core off road and they were great kept up with others with mud tyres ... So far 46,000 Km and they are pretty worn and will replaced soon .. Cheers Jim
I have a 2013 Colorado and have had two sets of Bridgestone Dueller H/T 840. 75,000ks each set.
Would I be better off with A/T 697?
Hi, I have a Toyota Prado Landcruiser 2013 with Dueler A/T light truck 697 245/70R17. What are the recommended tyre pressures for on road driving.The door plate from Toyota recommends 29psi front and back Also need the presures for off road terrain eg sand and corrugations. I have fitted about an extra 90 kg to the boot for general driving but have no idea of fully loaded weight. Thanks in anticipation Anne
I have 697’s also. Your Prada would originally come with a lighter tyre and consequently a higher speed rating tyre. The door plate would have been for those types. Although Light truck tires have a higher load capacity they have a lower speed rating in comparison to a P tyre. To travel at the same speed on the bituminous it is recommended they be run at 40 -42 psi. If you intend to drive at slower speeds such as on gravel roads you will need to reduce pressure. In the case of LT tryes speed plays an important part in determining tyre pressure. I constantly drive on a 110km/hr freeway and run mine @ 40/42.
