For anyone with the Bridgestone Dueler's, how have they done in winter? Reviews rate them as poor. I am already planning to put on something better when mine arrives. Just curious what others who have used them think.
When I heard, that's what will likely be on mine at delivery, I started to read reviews. Nearly everyone gave a consistent 1 star rating for winter conditions.My opinion, FWIW, they are the worst I have ever had in 20+ years of driving trucks. Luckily the truck does a great job, but I leave lots of stopping room
I'm already researching all terrain tires. I currently have the Firestone Destination A/T's on my cherokee, and they have done well in winter. The tread life is great too. After three years, I'm at about 8-9/32nds of tread life ramaining.I ran them for two winters here in Michigan on my 19 Laramie and with 4-auto they are an acceptable tire. Not great but not so bad I'd spend $1000 to replace them early. But at 22,000 miles they were at 5/32 so I took advantage of the Belle Tire Labor Day sale and replaced them with my favorite Michelin LTX ones.
I have a set I’ll sell you!Turns out they're absolutely fine. They're All Season highway tire so can't have too high of an expectation but it is definitely an ok tire and you're not going to die in the snow if you have some common sense and driving skill (for reference I have years of driving on a real snow tires in both FWD and RWD cars, currently have Contos DWS06 on Mustang which is about the best all season in snow).
Pic for reference, -4F, 40 mph wind, truck in RWD mode.
You realize that most of us hate your right now.The stock Duelers are working just fine for me so far, but then again I live in Phoenix and it's 67 right now.
Understood. Just remember we pay for it when it's 120 here for 3 months. Winter is why we live in the Valley of the Sun.You realize that most of us hate your right now.
Haha...I feel ya. I spent seven of the most miserable summers of my life in AZ, two in Phoenix and five in Tucson. The winters were the only thing that made up for that. Thankfully I worked the graveyard shift and slept through the hottest part of the day.Understood. Just remember we pay for it when it's 120 here for 3 months.
