They're OK, however not as good as Pirelli Scorpion or Hankook Dynapro
Got a new set in the Black Friday sales from JAX. Previous tyres were Pirelli Scorpion ATRs. First impression - a bit noiser on sealed roads, and a bit more sidewall flex. Expected that, as they look a bit more "aggressive". However this didn't translate to better off road. Unlike last time with the Pirellis, at 17PSI I needed to air down further + trax to get out of (bone dry) Ngala Rocks.
And they aren't really LTs - the competitors mentioned above have higher load indexes for the same size.
Bit of buyer's remorse to be honest.
Did only pay $254 each fitted for LT275/65R17 - so it's safe to say I got my money's worth, no more.
I have had these tyres for a while and hey have been good, No issues to date and wearing well. I am hoping to go off road soon and will sure get the feel form there. So Far so good so will keep an eye on them and hopefully get good mileage. I looked at https://www.tyrereview.com.au/reviews but the font have Bridgestone.. weird.
Poor wear and noisy
I am onto my 3rd set of these tyres on my 2003 Prado. I got 70K kms from each of the last 2 sets. This set only gave me 38K kms and need replacing already. I am now finding them noisy from left rear, tought was a wheel bearing until reading here. Very disappointed now.
Good long lasting tyres
Yes they are tyres durable. they impact really good on my commodore Ute because when I curry heavy stuff the tyres will hold they don't go flat quickly and they last a while. if you look after them they will last heaps long. go find some and try them. travels long distance good too
Tyres were due to be replace of my old car. The dealer recommended these tyres - was a bit skeptical but glad I purchased them. Not too expensive either. Planning to buy the same for my second car end of the year. Would recommend the tyres for people on tight budgets
Fire Stone's last longest
These are good but I think Firestone's last longest if you never go off road or go racing an are just use your car for work or shopping an general driving around the cbd a metropolitan area Firestone's are the best way to save money they are the hardest compound tyres bridgestone's sell for large family car's
Nice ride but poor wear
I have had these on my Colorado ute for 35000kms. They give a nice soft ride and handle well but judging by the state of wear will probably only get about 45000 kms out of them. At least 90% of the driving has been lightly loaded on bitumen so I would have expected more
OK, but not the best
Tyres are ok as a tyre, 55,000km later they are at the legal bar, completely worn out.
Advised by dealer should get minimum 75-80,000km but got no were near!!
They did wear evenly but did not last at all!
Definitely not getting again, had better run from cheaper Maxxis ones, going to try Cooper's, have a lot of good reviews.
Long life tyre 205/70/15
I have had these on the Forester for over 4 years, done 70000km on them, which is the best I have had from any tyre so far on this car. As they became more worn they were noisier, but not too bad. Unfortunately with the long life there was the disadvantage of poor road holding on wet roads, have to be very careful not to slide on the winding hilly roads.
good to start
These tyres were quiet, comfortable and looked good to start off with now they are half worn they are as noisey as muddys only done roughly 40,000km. We're good in the snow when new and ride well on the beach. hankook dynapros have very good reviews for a similar price. 265/70/17
265/70/16R, Decent tyre, not great
Had these on for 30,000kms, have found them to be surprisingly good with the little bit of off-roading I've done, no punctures or major chunks out after decent trips on gravel and stone tracks, even performed better than I expected in the mud for an AT. On the road in the dry they feel nice and secure and I haven't noticed the road noise being overly loud.
The big issue I have found with them is they perform terrible on the bitumen in the wet. Living on a mountain driving up or down it once the road sees even some slight dampness is nearly cau...
My 2013 Nissan Navara 4x4 Duel Cab came with Bridgestone Dueller A/T 265/70R16 112S 693
I live in a small town in central Queensland. I purchased the new vehicles in October 2013 and have done 43,400 Klm. All original tyres are due to be replaced. I have never rotated the tyres, only ever checking their pressure every few months. Operated between 36 and 40 PSI constantly. I have traveled on roughly graded dirt roads for less than 2,000 klm & 4WD tracks at low speed for less than 500Klm. The remaining kilometers has been on country bitumen. I have never driven hard or done burnouts. I want and expect a tyre to last in exces...s of 60,000klm. So,I am not happy with running these tyres again. I am presently researching other brands an reviews particularly to gain a better understanding of the type of tyre I should try next. I believe due to the bitumen conditions in Queensland country I should stay with an A/T (All Terrain) tyre with a harder compound. I also only do less than 10% off-road,so I do not need to seek excessive ply in the tread or tyre wall, however, do need to find a strength suitable to handle the rough edges and frequent pot-holes in our major roads. I'm pricing the Maxxis & Coopers A/T 265/70R16's and reading reviews before I make up my mind. Always willing to hear from anyone who have done the kilometers (not interested in those comments about just done 15,000 and think 75% tread left , so expect great thing...Blah Blah Blah...As I also thought that at 15,000 however it has sadly not turned out that way. Anyhow just got a call about Micky Thompson's and will check those out as well. Hopefully my next review will be a positive 80,000Klm + review. The same Bridgestone provider that called me also quoted replacement vale of the Bridgestone Dueller A/T 265/70R16 112S 697 aat $944 per set fitted & balanced. That makes my cost approximately $228.57 per 10,000Klm's. Something to work on.
30K and worn down
Replaced my HT 265/65R17 which did 79K on road and dirt with D697 Dueller. 30K later and looking at another set of tyres. Did not change driving habits, but tyres on rear of Pajero down to 2mm mark!!. And the noise is bad. No noise when new, but turning up the radio helps when I drive now. Disappointing, as they look good and fill me with confidence out there in Oz.
Noise from tyres unreal
I bought these tyres for my Pajero and stored the originals for later (about half wornBridgestoneH/Ts) I staked one H/T tyre and decided to go for a higher ply rating of 8 in the A/T range. To start they were a harder ride and a little noisier but O.K. for tripping around Oz. But as these tyres started to wear the noise level increased, going around a roundabout I was sure I'd done a wheel bearing and over time it just got louder. I kept checking the hubs for heat but they were all about the same front to back so I ruled out bearings.
But ...in the end I had the car checked twice by Mitsubishi who were very nice about the whole thing and didn't even charge me and they found no problem anywere with my vehicle. They suspected it may be the tyres so all I wanted to do was wear them out and move on. In the end I was so sick of the noise and the worry, I put the original H/Ts back on just to make sure it wasn't mechanical. It was like geting into a new car. The wear on the A/T was good but it was not a tyre for Hard roads, I still have them they have more than 1/2 tread, I will put on again but only for a long 4x4 trip not every day use. I am looking at replacing my H/Ts for Yokohama Geolander ATS or HTS for every day. Has anybody any feed back on these tyres.
