The Dueler H/T 684 highway
all-season tire from Bridgestone is designed to provide dependable year-round traction and handling. Engineered for
drivers of sport utility vehicles and crossovers, the HT 684 has been used as original equipment on vehicles from
Chevy, Toyota, Hyundai and others.
An all-season tread compound features L.L. Carbon
black that is designed to increase tire wear and performance on wet road surfaces. Bridgestone utilizes a unique
Comprehensive Tire Design Method to enhance traction on both dry and wet pavement through an improved casing shape,
design, materials and construction.
Larger outside shoulder blocks increase dry traction
and cornering stability, while also enhancing steering response and feel, which is an area that many have mentioned
as a positive in reviews and ratings. 5 Degree Noise Reduction technology provides noise-cancelling sound waves
that work to reduce outside road noise on all types of road surfaces.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that
are spirally wrapped for added strength and stability at higher speeds, while Bridgestone's UNI-T technology
further adds to driving performance and comfort. Sizes range from 15-18 inches, and the tire comes with a 60,000
mile tread guarantee.
Excellent dry traction
Handling and cornering are good
Smooth and comfortable ride
A little extra road noise
Tread life has been an issue for some
We give the Bridgestone 684 mixed reviews for its
overall performance. The tire does provide very good dry traction and cornering stability, and the ride is smooth
and comfortable for the most part.
On the other side you can expect to hear a little
added road noise on the highway than you will with many other tires in this class. Beyond that, this is a highway
all-season tire, so traction off-road is minimal. That is just not what this tire was designed for. Tread life is
another area that has disappointed many drivers. That said, Bridgestone does include a 60K
Overall, we rank the H/T 684 in the lower half of
the class. The Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 offers much higher performance than this tire and makes a better choice
in our opinion. Other models in this category that you may want to consider include the Continental LX20 and
Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season.
Goodyear provides a 6-year or 60,000 mile tread life
warranty on the HT 684. Tire uniformity is guaranteed for the first 2/32 inch of wear.
Materials and workmanship are warranted for 6-years
and include free tire replacement during the first year or first 2/32 inch of wear. A prorated amount is given for
the remaining time period or down to the final 2/32 inch of tread depth.
