Great All Round Tyre
These Bridgestone Dueler A/T 697 tyres are great in any conditions whether driving on the highway or off road. They have a deep tread pattern but are quiet on the bitumen, competitively priced and long wearing.
Purchased in March 2019 at Bridgestone Select for $569.
Solid All Terrain tyres, worth the money
The Bridgestone all terrains I have are quiet on the highway and hold quality grip in mud. The overall handling and performance is good. An excellent all terrain choice. My Triton doesn’t slide on roundabouts in the rain anymore, stopping distance has improved and they improve the look of the 4x4 massively. Worth the money.

Bridgestone Dueler A/T 697 a solid all round tyre
I have owned two sets of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T 697 285 60 R18 and each time I have managed 60K out of each set. The LT construction makes them very robust for off road, I have thrown all sorts of punishment at these tyres, some war wounds but they continue to hold up and deliver the goods. They need regular rotating to get their full life I do mine every 5K for the first 20,000km then every 10K to 15K there after at oil change. I have owned Cooper and BF Goodrich tyres in the past and whilst they were also great tyres I would say the Bri...dgestone Dueler A/T 697 is slightly better for the pattern of usage I throw at them 75 City 20 Sand and Mud 5 Rocky terrain. The only thing I notice is when the wear gets to the last 10Km prior to the wear marker being encountered the tyres have hardened and can be a little slippery in the wet, not to be unexpected and to be honest most tyres do the same. Price wise in teh 285 60 R18 these are an expensive tyre at $400 plus per tyre.

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

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...

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.
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.

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?
Purchased in September 2018 for $250.
Questions & Answers
Looking to put these tyres on my 2007 RAV4 for 50 on/50 off road driving. Has anyone had good/bad experiences with these tyres on a RAV?
How will know that I have bought the right tyres
They will have Bridgestone Dueler A/T written on the side wall of the tyre. I bought them from Bridgestone Select in a buy 3 get the 4th one free deal. Not sure whether other dealers like Bob Jane, Beaurepaires etc would have this tyre or deal.
So many tyre choices out there you just have to find one at your price point and take a bit of a guess. At the end of the day a tyre is a tyre and they all do a similar job. If you never go off road t...his isn't the tyre for you. If you spend nearly all your time off road this isn't the tyre for you. I'd say these are more of a 50 on/50 off tyre.
I have a 2019 Isuzu DMax with 18x7 inch rims can I legally put on a dualer A/T 697 on my vehicle
