Bridgestone is on a distinguished road

Hi MiddleAgeSubie,

Those are some meticulously kept records!

Yes, it's true that unpaved roads and going off the beaten path you will see much lower useable mileage from road oriented tyres, despite all efforts in suspension alignment, rotation and so on.

To combat this, we use Light Truck tyre construction and a special malleable rubber compound for the Bridgestone Dueler AT 697, which can switch between tarmac and off road duties easily while increasing comfort, tyre life, and resistance to punctures and cuts. One of our testers managed to even get 90,000kms (55,000 miles approximately) out of their set touring around Australia!

You can check out our dueler range here:

Kind regards,
The Bridgestone Team
