very dangerous in the wet very disappointing
these tyres are just over 2 years old have done 45000 klm and for the last year have let go whilst turning corners in the wet , I spoke to Bridgestone and they told me there had been no negative reports but I can speak from experience these AT Dueler tyres are just dangerous.
I am now 74 years old and although these tyres are nor worn out as they just passed rego in NSW I am replacing them with Cooper AT3LT

Really good all terrain when it's not wet.
Fitted to a diesel Suzuki Vitara. Lots of long road mileage but weekends climbing some more serious gravel tracks, and a couple of rare surface mud stretches. Trailer tow every once in a while, and sometimes an overloaded wagon when retrieving some of the boys out back on the weekend.
As an all terrain tire, they're awesome. Grip well on the dry road, grip really well gravelly tracks. Slightly softer side wall than standard car tires which soaks up the rocks and lumps nicely for a comfortable ride even at higher pressures. Trade-off is a softer...

Good but Dangerous on wet roads..
Have always used Bridgestone on various vehicles the last 20 odd years having tried other and cheaper brands found me back to Bridgestone for the safety and longevity. I currently have these tyres on a Rav4 for mainly commuting and some light off road dirt track use. Plenty of tread. The side walls sit nice and do not slump or sag. After 7 months of use they still look new with no abnormal wearing or tearing on edges from cornering. They handle well in the dry, when cornering and on dirt tracks. They pull up quickly on dry bitumen roads howeve...r they loose traction very easily on wet bitumen when braking. Any emergency moderate to excessive braking and the tyres quickly loose grip and slide and fail to regrip. In the rain I now drive over cautiously leaving huge space from the vehicle in front. I recommend if you have or buy these tyres you try a wet road emergency stop test. I will see theses tyres out but will no longer buy or can recommend Bridgestone tyres as safety is my main priority.

Have these on my 99 pa challenger. They go good on and off road but when its wet and raining they seem to slide a bit. But other then that. Great 4x4 tyres

Terrible on a Pajero
Have an NT V6 Pajero with these on it. Don't do it to yourself people. They howl like a beaten dog and are so slippery I am looking to replace them even though they are only 40% worn. Rubbish tyre.
Great Tyre for us
This is the third set of these ties on my D 40 Navarra, have tried others and come back to these we do a lot of horse float towing in an out of paddocks and also some for Will driving found these tyres to suit us the best and very strong

Good mileage that’s all
Had these on the Ute from new had to be replaced at 5000 km as they were out of round causing horrible vibration through vehicle. Noisy but good mileage overall only reason for 2 .stars

Fantastic tires, very quiet and handling is very good, fuel economy which I monitor didn't suffer. My previous tires were Michelin Lattitude AT and Bridgestone are much quieter, this could be because my old tires were quite worn.
It is too early for me to comment on the durability as I did only few hundred kilometres on those.
But nevertheless I'm satisfied with the purchase.

Very Happy with my purchase
My 2014 Landcruiser Prado was on its OEM tyres, they were skittish in the wet and I had to change them at 53,000klms ahead of this year’s journey. I purchased a set of Dueler A/T 697 tyres and have just done my first 14,000klms on them driving from Sydney to Kakadu and back home via north QLD. A lot of tarmac, mostly dry but some wet days, some terrible corrugations and small distances of rough 4WD. Traction was great in all conditions and so much better than the OEM tyres. They are noisier, but not terribly so as the profile is not overly aggressive. I am very happy with my choice.
Purchased in March 2019 for $295.00.
I have had two sidewall punctures on my brand new 225/60R17 A/T 697.
Both were on corrugated but easy tracks. One the main dirt road at Litchfield, the other the dirt road into the Bungle Bungles. Tyres were run at 30psi so nothing extreme.
In this size they are not light truck tyres so don't have the extra sidewall ply's.
I am very disappointed they have lasted less than 3,000kms.

Price is good, product hopeless.
I purchased my set of 5 tyres 11000 km ago. They have been rotated once in this time. I have been on road the whole time until yesterday. First time offroad tore a sidewall out of one tyre on a stick, replaced it with the spare. Got home ok but this morning anorher tyre dead flat on the car. I bought these based on the false claims made in there current add. Never again!

I have read that they slip in the wet when cornering but this is not so I will keep buying them.
My Bridgestone Dweller's D697 were put on my car with the highlighted name on the inside in other words backwards I can see no rotation arrows is this safe and will not harm the tyres?

Second set but not happy
My first set of tyres were very good and I put 70,000 kms on them with probably 5000 kms left, I towed my 2000 kg caravan 30,000 kms and no problems, even when the tread was get low they felt pretty safe on wet bitumen. I didn't hesitate to buy another full set of 5 tyres in preparation for a trip to the Flinders Rangers, the new set preformed well on and off road, when the tyre reached about 35,000 kms I noticed the tyres had lost there grip on wet bitumen, I have preserved with them and now the tyres have 68,000 kms and probably still 15,000...kms left on them ( 10,000 km 5 tyre rotation) they have become deadly in the wet. Bridgestone always set my tyre pressure to 40 psi for every day driving, I have lowered the pressure to 35 psi to see if that would help with traction but no it hasn't helped, the tyres are so scary in the wet I'm getting rid of them and changing brands. I honestly wouldn't recommend these tyres because I consider them outright dangerous after some wear. Going to give Toyo AT 2 ago. Bridgestone has lost my business.
