Graham Cahill from 4WD Action explains the important features to look for when choosing an all-terrain tyre including puncture resistance and wear life.
If you’re after a tyre that can take you off-road, yet be practical and offer long wear life for the majority of its on-road life, then perhaps the Bridgestone Dueler 697 is the perfect tyre for you. The ultimate 4WD all terrain tyre, designed and tested to withstand Australia’s harshest outback conditions.
Not every all-terrain tyre has been designed and tested to withstand Australia's harsh outback condition, but the Bridgestone Dueler 697 has. Its proven superior wear life and better resistance to cutting and chipping this tyre will take you anywhere you want to throw your 4WD be it the beach, the outback or even harsher bush conditions, making it the number one choice for all terrain adventuring. Dueler is tough enough to bring you back.
With an optimised tread pattern design and depth minimising puncture risk by reducing gap between its tread blocks. The tread depth has been specifically chosen for Australia’s conditions to achieve the perfect balance between wear life, handling and heat durability.
The Bridgestone Dueler 697 features an advanced under-tread compound to disperse heat which increases durability. Additionally, the light truck construction of the tyre offers thicker sidewall and casing components which mean puncture resistance and longer wear life.
Compared to other popular brands, the Bridgestone Dueler 697 had the deepest distance of penetration when undergoing puncture testing. That means it takes more to puncture these tyres than many other all-terrain tyres on the market.
