Bridgestone Duelers A/T review

Hey I'm pretty new to offroading and I need some advice. I have Bridgestone Dueler A/Ts and I was just wondering how they preform offroad. Just want to make sure they're good enough. I'm just talking trail riding, no wall climbing or huge mud puddles and stuff like that, but I did rain recently so it may be a little muddy (im not really worries about that though) and I want to make sure they are reliable. Thanks for the help

I had these on my 2000 F150 before I sold it. I thought they were pretty decent for an all terrain tire. I didn't try much with them other than normal street driving where they were pretty quiet and some light dirt, off road work. They were great in the ice, snow, and rain as well.

I've got nothing bad to say about them. I know some aren't a fan of Firestone products, but I've had no problems and I can get them cheap...my buddy is a tire manager at a story.

One more thing, which Dueler AT are you looking at? The ones I had were the RH-S models, but there are several other ones out there.

They will be ok. Just don't get in too much mud. The throw gravel, mud and snow ok. I do air down which helps grip better on rocks and roots. I will upgrade but right now they work fine. I will leave them on for winter for sure. They do better on wet road and Ice then a mud tire.

I ran with 2 guys who had them. aired down they could keep up with me no issues (running wither TSLs or KM2s) they gripped really well for an AT tire on rocks and they were never held back by their tires. They were both running the Revos

Thanks for the responses, I just want to make sure they preform decently offroad. So airing down the tires would be a good idea then? about how much do you air yours down? And any other tips on offroading, anything will help haha
Thank you

I have not had these on a jeep. But I did have these on my last duramax. We took it to Haspin one weekend that was just a total mud fest. They pulled great in 6" of mud. They were pretty good AT

there are 4 different Bridgestone Dueller AT's.. All of which are middle of the road AT's.. They are ok for general trail usage.. Won't be great especially if the trails are wet.. Just use a little more skinny pedal and you'll make it through fine.. Make sure you have a full size spare with you
