lexx,
i know what you mean had thoese and the life on them not very good either, i ended up with michelin. $1400 a tyre. though compared to the 850 the bridgestone selling for. but i just don't like them. the review show that they not so hot either.

Anyone familiar with the Dunlop Grandtrek AT2? I am getting a set in the correct size and would like to know if there are any issues with them. In the size in All Terrain apparently the only two options I have are the Roadstone or the Dunlop otherwise I need to go 31*10.5.

.....anyways, this is from a debate we had in the big thread about the difference between the GrandTreks....the ones the Prados come with vs what i bought.

now the Prados have a GrandTrek but it's the AT02....as seen below...

...which while saying A/T....looks more H/T to me....


...these GrandTrek AT2 is what i bought and well, yuh could see the difference...

....a bit more rugged for the mud and bush.....and very self cleaning...( i was in some mud/sand yesterday...)

I'm trying to locate some Bridgetstone 265/65R17 Duelers. I've tried at least 20 different spots in the east and west and also TTTL, with no luck. Anyone have any suggestions as to where I could get these? Everyone keeps offeing me alternatives when I already have 4 Bridgestones on. I'm tempted to just order them from the states right now.

Yip. The original tyre. If I can find this place I'll go right now and buy it. There are people that sell this tyre, however they are selling them in groups of 4 and they don't want to break the set. I was just about to head out and buy the Dunlop tyre instead. Thanks a lot btw wagon_r. I need to increase my Truck/Pickup knowledge so I can start contributing and giving back to the community :p

Anyway by any chance do you know the name of the place in Montrose? I can give them a call and save me the trouble of going down there and finding out they don't have it. I'll check the yellowpages for now

Thanks wagon_r and Fire_FIghter786. I didn't really have a choice with the brand of tyre Fire Fighter since the truck is ~2 weeks old and I had to replace the spare already lol. I wanted to keep them all the same. However, nowhere has single Bridgestone so I went with the Dunlop as a spare till I have to replace the other 4 tyres. Thanks again wagon_r!

Bridgestone H/T duelers - Pros -nice smooth. quiet ride, Cons - low treadwear rating, below average traction. Have had a set my L200 for the last 20,000Km. Next time going to try something different or maybe the A/T Duelers with the more aggresive tread pattern, if I can find them.

DRE7413 or any of the guys on the forum - if you ordering tires from the states what is the cost for shipping and customs? The thing is i need to get AT duelers for my bt50 within the next couple months.

i assume you was considering ordering from the Tire rack.

Very strong suggestion here bro.... refrain from using those Bridgestone Duelers as much as you can. The ones the Xtrails ( and some other vehicles ) come with are the absolute worst !!!

We've switched to the TOYO that Mileage Mack has which is a bit wider but still stays under the fender. If you want the stock size they have the Michellins as well.

Ther are the Duelers that are being sold in stores right now that are laot better then the stock but I'm staying away from them.

From what i'm seeing is that the Duelers that are being sold on the market now are the DUELER H/T 687 which are being manufactured in Venezuela :| :|

Wifey just bought a locally used one and they guy put on new yires and unfortunately that's what it came with and it's not all that great.

Can't wait for them to wear out to get rid of them !!!
