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

  • Overall - Bridgestone road tyres 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.

Top 3 Bridgestone Dueler HP Sport Reviews

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.

Given 86% while driving a Volkswagen Tiuan R Line (235/50 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 31,000 easy going miles
Really good tyres 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 tyres I've ever had and would definitely recommend.

My Touareg had the Bridgestones on when bought so i replaced like for like when the rears wore down, i must say i will be trying another brand next time though, ive had a few hairy moments in the wet when the car just wants to go straight on in corners, the rears have only lasted 10k miles and the noise level on motorways isnt great..

Given 10% while driving a BMW X3 (245/50 R19) on for 0 miles
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 tyre 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 tyres on my second-hand Tiguan. Driven all summer on them and now just changed to the winter tyres...what a difference. I had assumed it was the Tiguan's set-up and probably partly is, but now with the winter tyres 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 tyres and overall I felt much happier in my 22 year-old Ford Focus. The positive....these tyres 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 tyre 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 tyre 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 tyre 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!

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, tyres 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 tyre 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 tyre pressure as well.

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

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

Given 89% while driving a Nissan Qashqai (215/65 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 50,000 average miles
Firm ride. Long lasting tyres that wear well. A littie noisy but handle wet and dry conditions well. Car was fitted with these when new and have refitted the same after 50,000 miles. Tyres showed no signs of cracking or side wall damage. Would buy again

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 tyres are required.

Given 60% while driving a Volkswagen Tiguan Sport 2.0 TDI 140hp (235/55 R17 V) on mostly country roads for 15,000 spirited miles
They're ok - but the rolling resistance seems massive compared to other tyres, and lateral stability and road noise are a problem.
Replaced them with Cross Climate+ for the winter and the difference in noise, economy and stability is distinctly noticeable.

(235/50 R18) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
OE equipment on 2015 VW Tiguan, got 53,000km out of them, mixed driving. Excellent handling wet and dry. Not much off road use to comment. Handling was good even when close to wear markers and in the wet. Only negative is they are a little loud. Just put another set on. Overall very happy!

Given 49% while driving a Jeep compass (235/45 R19 H) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
So i've had these tyres for a month and bit and they are just really noisy. Dry grip is okay, I've not had much of a chance to try them in the wet other than the odd downpour at which point they were at best average. The wear seems to be minimal but the noise, they are just so loud compared to the Vrederstein's when you drive at anything over 30mph.

One thing worth saying and it is mentioned in a few reviews these tyres are supposed to be premium but they do not hold well when trying to make quick directional changes. Rare in an SUV I grant you but still they just completely let go, leaving the steering going floaty and you get to roll your luck to see what happens. Really the only worse tyres I've experianced was the Nankang Greenline tyres and they are proper cheap so it says a lot about what Bridgestone need to do with this tyre.
