2013 Auto Review Sports SUV Summer Test - 5th of 11 tires

  • Overall - Bridgestone road tires have been lacking a little in recent years, but the Dueler H/P Sport puts on a strong showing. While it can't quite match the top four in the wet, it's very confident in the dry, and fairly quiet. Average comfort, and lacks a little in rolling resistance.

    Given 59% while driving a Mitsubishi Outlander (225/55 R18 V) on mostly town for 35,000 easy going miles
    Quite noisy. I really dont recommend these to owners who have cars with lite noise insulation like on my car. Dry grip is ok. Wet grip is also ok. Ride comfort is nod so bad either. But the steering response is quite strange. Seems like they are trying to resist against faster steering even on very low speeds. Something like "Ok ok...I will turn, but I really dont want to do that." And their only advantage according me is mileage. If you drive your SUV like SUV and not like a racing car then they will last.

    Subaru Forester (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 15,000 average miles
    It always makes me laugh when people say one brand ihandles better, is louder, stops better in the wet etc. How would they know? As far as I can tell, tires from premium brands of the same size and using similar components all handle about the same.

    Noisy? Don’t know. They’re certainly more quiet than a proper off road tire but I’ve usually got my phat beats pumping.

    Performance in the dry is better than in the wet, no surprise there.

    Handling? Surely the vehicle’s geometry has more of a say there ... maybe tire pressure as well.

    If you drive like a dick then it doesn’t matter what brand of tire you use, you’re going to get into more trouble than if you take it easy.

    All up, there’s nothing wrong with these tires. I can’t fault them but I can’t really compare them with anything because they’re the only tires I’ve had on the vehicle.

    I drive a 2018 Subaru Forester with 15000 kms on the dial. Mostly urban driving but quite a few kms touring, gravel roads and beach driving.

    Really good tires lasted for 31,000 miles from new on a VW Tiguan R Line and still had 2mm left on them.
    Great wet and dry grip and really good handling in all conditions.
    Longest lasting tires I've ever had and would definitely recommend.

    Latest Bridgestone Dueler HP Sport Reviews

    Given 61% while driving a Subaru Outback (225/60 R18) on a combination of roads for 30,000 average miles
    These tires were OE fitment on the 2018 Subaru Outback Premium 2.5 which we bought new. They're about to be replaced, being down to around 2.6 mm after c. 52,000 km. They've been fine, just one puncture (repairable), have been rotated regularly and have worn very evenly and are still in excellent condition (no sidewall deterioration, cracking or uneven tread wear issues) so construction quality seems good. I'm always very careful to keep pressures checked and adjusted for different load conditions and summer temperatures. They're fairly soft riding, so I rate ride comfort as good, but they are quite noisy on common Australian country road coarse chip tarmac (though quiet on smooth bitumen). I wouldn't rate feedback as high, but that is partly down to the car, and they're an SUV tire after all. They've never lost traction on the road even in the wet, but the Subaru is no powerhouse so that's hardly surprising. They are pretty good on gravel roads and tracks given they are really a road tire but predictably don't have much grip if it's at all muddy. Overall I'd say they were perfectly suited to the car. The big surprise is the cost of replacement, where they are coming up significantly more expensive than options such as Michelin Pilot Sport SUV or Primacy SUV+, the Pirelli Scorpion Verde or Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance, so I'm likely to chose one of those options instead.

    Given 40% while driving a Mitsubishi ASX Outlander Sport (225/55 R18) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
    Had the tires on a Mitsubishi ASX. Found that tire wear was rather poor despite regular rotations every 5000 km. Tires were worn out at 35000 km. Car was unsettled if you hit a rough patch while driving, felt like the tires were losing grip. Wet performance was average, hydroplaned a few times while driving at 80km/h in a tropical downpour. At 2 years old, noticed dry rot on all 4 tires in the thread area. Would not recommend this tires to anyone. For a tire with a premium price this is a rather poor performance

    Fitted to a new Mercedes GLC AMG 220D permanent 4 wheel drive. Average driving on a variety of motorway, town and rural A and B roads and all year driving. Grip generally good. My only grope is miles completed... 15K on the rear and 17K on the front. I am unlikely to buy these again. I think there are better tires out there for the money. Tire spec was Bridgestone Dueller Sport, 235/55 R 19 101V MO.

    came on my 2021 X3 30i BMW, these are the most dangerous tires I have ever driven on on the highway. BMW should be ashamed of putting these on the X3 for sure. I have searched the internet to find out what the heck is wrong with my vehicle. Dealer says "VEHICLE DOES FOLLOW ROAD RUTTS. NORMAL" I am almost 70 years old and have never driven anything like this in my life and apparently I am not alone. check out these websites : In case I left any doubt, NO I DO NOT RECOMMEND THESE TIRES

    Given 63% while driving a Jeep compass (225/55 R18) on a combination of roads for 8,500 average miles
    I think there is a better tire for my 2020 Jeep Compass. I went in mud, on grass, on road, off road, wet, dry roads and I did not have any problems. On the edges if the tire on the front axle I can see little bit damage. Now I have 8500km. Maybe tires are not so comfortable. This season will end in one month with summer tires so we will see. For winter I got Hankook Winter I cept Evo 3.

    Given 40% while driving a Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0 TDI 170hp (235/50 R18) on a combination of roads for 24,000 average miles
    These came VW factory-fitted as summer tires on my second-hand Tiguan. Driven all summer on them and now just changed to the winter tires...what a difference. I had assumed it was the Tiguan's set-up and probably partly is, but now with the winter tires on I can hear/feel just how noisy and imprecise the Bridgstones were. I do a fair amount on rough winding mountain roads and never felt confident to really attack the road because I couldn't predict how the car would react because it was jumping around and usually understeering. On the straighter "main roads", the noise was really too loud....the Tiguan has a lot of sound-proofing but even so it couldn't deal with these tires and overall I felt much happier in my 22 year-old Ford Focus. The positive....these tires have done 24000 miles of summer driving and still have 6.5-7 mm tread. I'd really like not to put them back on next spring but that's a lot of money to "throw away"

    Given 68% while driving a Volkswagen Amarok permanent 4x4 (255/60 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 1,500 spirited miles
    Well, suppose it is a road only tire to which it does well. SUVs and much more pickups go off-asphalt so booo to both bridgestone and VW for fitting it to an Amarok and as such the poor review is well deserved. The tire is AWFUL on anything more challenging than the best dirt roads. Just a mildly wet dirt-road and you're stuck. Dry grass and I barely knew what happened under my feet. A 100% on road tire that performs well there, but doesn't deserve being fitted on a SUV much less a pick-up that intends to do more than parking on sidewalks!

    The dueler sports are by a small margin firmer than the michelin primacy they replaced but in all other aspects are just as good,they suit the car well,are quiet,steer well and feel secure especially on poor surfaces (in the uk that is most of the time!) Will be buying these again when new tires are required.
