Provides grippy traction that reminds me sticky skateboard tyres. As far as I have experienced they operate smoothly and safe both on dry and wet tarmac conditions yet not used for off-roading. I used to cruise with coopers but these are better
Purchased in May 2021.
These set have lasted 130k km and are are considered the best tyres I’ve ever put onto my vehicle. They handle well in all weather conditions and terrain. They’re up there with the most durable tyres I’ve ever used.
Desert dueler AT 697
Had these on my prado, done 70000km on them all city driving lol before having to replace them. Will buy them again. Great tyres. Not sure of off-road performance but can imagine they would go ok.
LT construction Bargain price, Puncture free, use them & abuse them
LT construction. Fitted to a Hilux Driven mainly on unsealed roads through out Central & Western Australia, had a buy 3 get 1 free deal, bought 6 with a company discount worked out $200 a tyre. Got around 40,000 kms out of the rears. Never rotated, run at lower pressures on rough roads, tyres close to fully loaded, always abused. Never had a puncture.
Lower Road noise then some other all terrains.
Some decent war wounds but LT hold up.
I think LT construction is what makes it shine.
Owe me nothing fingers crossed another sale comes up.
Purchased in August 2017 at Bridgestone Select for $200.00.
Best all round AT Tyre, good value for money
Used 697's for over 10 years on a Prado, 100 Series Land Cruiser, SR5 Hilux and an FJ Cruiser.
The wet performance is outstanding, braking and handling, far superior to the OE tyres. On my 100 series I travelled all over northern WA, covering some 68,000 on one set of tyres, rotated every 10,000, including the spare. All in all I have had one puncture, a plasterboard nail that I picked up after a bunch of nails fell off the back of a Ute. I did a lot of off road work with the Prado, rarely having to reduce tyre pressures, unless in sand, as the...
Purchased in September 2019 at Costco QLD, North Lakes for $290.00.
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...
Purchased in July 2018.
Fitted these tyres to my 2014 Nissan Navara D22 three and a half years ago. They have low road noise, excellent on gravel roads, don't seem to pick up rocks. Good in the wet and good in the dry. Have had 2 punctures due to nails, no fault of the tyres. Would highly recommend and buy again. I got 85000km out of them with all sorts of driving conditions and towing. Cost a bit more than the average tyre but you get what you pay for.
Purchased for $250.00.
Could Be Better
I feel like these lose a bit of traction in wet weather but they are great for driving in dry conditions. Had my car balanced and tyre chucked on within thirty minutes and it’s been a smooth drive ever since.
Great all round tyre

The extensive collection of tires fit all car types and the quality is amazing and allows the subjects car to get quickly fixed so you can be back on the roads
Purchased in February 2020 at 99 Bike NSW, Alexandria for $499.00.
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

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
Purchased in March 2017 for $245.00.
I have over the years used plenty of tyres on my vehicles..local, imported..I have found that generally the Japanese brand tyres last the longest over all and stay in a user friendly trend
Purchased in September 2019 at griffin autos newcastle for $185.00.
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.
Purchased in November 2019.
Return customer third time in 14 years on same vehicle!
Im on my third set in the same vehicle in 14 years.

High country, snow, desert, bush, sand, road, sheeting...
doesnt matter, she goes...
The greatest tyres to ever exist. Durability is picture perfect for rogued roads! Such difference felt when changing from another brand! Bridgestone will by my forever tyres on any vehicle I buy!
I'll get these again
Have had these about 12 months, 265-65-17's on my Prado. Noisier than Dunlop highway tyres. Have been Birdsville, Strzlecki, Oodnadatta, Cordillo Downs, Flinders Ranges, Cape York. Good grip, zero issues.
Purchased at Bob Jane T-Marts.
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 am on my second set of AT697's on my Landcruiser 100 series and couldn't be happier. Use has been a mix of black top, dirt & towing a 2.5T van. They now have 76000kms on them and still have, I estimate 5 - 10000 left. Grip still good on bitumen wet or dry. Might suffer in mud. Looking for a new set in the next 6 months.
Purchased in May 2014 for $330.00.
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?
