Bridgestone Dueler H/L Tire Review & Rating
For several years running, the Bridgestone Dueler H/L D683 has been a popular choice among pickup, SUV and crossover owners. Used extensively as original equipment on a number of different vehicles, the HL is built to provide dependable traction, a quiet ride and longer lasting treadlife.
Bridgestone utilizes its unique and innovative UNI-TAQII technology in the tread compound. This dual layer tread compound combats the effects of tread wear hardening that comes as the result of heat buildup from miles of use.
A symmetric tread pattern, large shoulder blocks and continuous center rib combine to increase steering response, stability and traction in all types of road and weather conditions.
Durability and strength are added through the tire’s twin steel belts that have been reinforced with spirally wound nylon. A polyester cord body delivers added ride comfort and more even tread wear. A 65,000 mile tread wear warranty is also included.
- Good dry and wet traction
- Responsive steering
- Excellent ride comfort
- 60,000 mile warranty
- Winter traction
- Road noise
The Bridgestone Dueler H/L D683 delivers very good traction and handling on dry or wet road surfaces. You’ll find the tires to be responsive and stable while providing good ride comfort. The trade off is a little extra road noise compared to other tires in this class. Winter traction could be better, especially in deeper snow and on ice.
Overall, we rank the Dueler H/L 683 in the middle of the pack for highway all-season tires. We would suggest checking out other models like the Michelin Defender LTX M/S, Firestone Destination LE2 and Cooper Discoverer HTP as better options.
