Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Tire Review & Rating

The Dueler H/L Alenza from Bridgestone sports unique engineering to go with the latest in tire technology. Developed for drivers of all types of SUV’s, pickups and crossovers, the Alenza is designed for year round traction and performance to go with a more comfortable ride.

The all-season tread compound includes L.L. Carbon, which improves tire wear and enhances wet pavement performance. What else is unique about this tread compound is that it is a dual-layer compound. Bridgestone incorporates its unique UNI-T AQII technology to create a rubber that prevents it from hardening as the years, and miles, go by.

Dueler H/L Alenza from Bridgestone Tires

This new technology works by reducing the effects of heat buildup that occurs as the miles go by. As the tread wears, a new layer is exposed which offsets the normal results from heat building up and damaging the rubber.

UNI-T technology ensures a more rounded tire that makes for increased ride comfort whether around town or out on the highway. One of the things that you will immediately notice with this tire is how stable it is. Steering response is enhanced through the tires wide continuous center rib, while larger tread blocks around the shoulders add more stability at highway speeds.

Wet traction is increased through 3-D sipes, wider circumferential grooves and lateral notches around the tread. They provide added traction and grip during heavy rains, or on snow covered roads.

Inside the tire you’ll find two steel belts that are reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon for added strength and better ride quality. Bridgestone includes either a 60,000 mile or 45,000 mile tread guarantee depending on the speed rating of the tire.

Pros

  • Excellent traction and handling on wet/dry road surfaces   
  • Tires are very stable at all speeds   
  • Steering response and feel are above average   
  • Comfortable ride   

Cons

  • A little more road noise than other top models in this class   
  • Treadlife has been an issue for some   

Overall Thoughts

The Alenza is one of Bridgestone’s more popular truck/suv tires. We feel that the traction, braking and acceleration you have on wet, dry and even snow covered road surfaces is very good in most cases. Tire stability, as well as steering response, is excellent. You feel in control at all times. You’ll find the ride is also quite comfortable on this tire. That said… there are some negatives.

Road noise is a bit more pronounced than say on the Michelin Premier LTX. It’s not overly loud by any means, but just a little more noticeable, especially when the tire begins wearing out. In addition, some have mentioned treadlife has been shorter than expected. To be fair, others have said they have gotten good tread wear from the tire.

Overall, this is a solid performing tire. However, we would recommend going with the newer H/L Alenza Plus as it has a bit higher performance.
