Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus Tire Review & Rating

Aimed at crossovers and high performance SUV’s, the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus has a design that means it can perform in all weather conditions while also delivering enhanced fuel efficiency and a more comfortable driving experience.

A symmetric tread pattern helps to reduce noise levels over long distances where as the notched shoulder blocks and a continuous center rib results in a higher level of responsiveness and overall tire stability.

Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus Tire Review

For all-season driving the wide circumferential grooves, lateral notches and sipes provide strong traction in wet, dry and light snowy conditions. Also, durability is assured via the twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wound nylon while polyester cords protect the sidewall and add to its longevity.

The HL Alenza Plus comes in a wide variety of 15 to 20 inch sizes and with speed ratings up to a W. Bridgestone also includes a massive 80,000 mile tread warranty on this tire as well.

Pros

  • Performs very well in year round weather conditions   
  • Steering is responsive
  • Ride comfort   
  • Strong and durable tire   
  • 80K mile warranty   

Cons

  • Braking on ice for some drivers   

Overall Thoughts

For crossover vehicles, light pickups and SUV’s there are not many touring all-season tires available that could be considered  all that much better than the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus. Expect to find a very responsive and durable tire that offers excellent traction.

It handles light snow as efficiently as it does rain and dry pavement. Getting well over 70-80k miles out of them is realistic. Their 80,000 mile warranty is one of the best around as well. About the only negative with this model is that braking on ice may be a problem for some, although we have heard a number of driver reviews mentioning that this is not an issue at all.

Overall, for a durable, long lasting and solid performing tire you can’t go wrong with the Dueler H/L Alenza Plus from Bridgestone. We rate it up among the top three tires in this class.

  1. I have a 2010 Chevy Tahoe purchased the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza PLUS P275/55R20 80,000 mile tires. I have driven 40,000 miles and the tires are trash. Tread is almost completely gone and they are cracking!! Will not buy again.

  2. Interesting comment about GM OEM tires.. I have the Continental CrossContact LX20 on my 18 Tahoe with 30k miles. Tires are done. They have become unsafe in the rain. Warranty states 70k miles for the tire. I like the ride its quiet and smooth. I am debating on getting another set, but will they last longer than the factory ones or go with the Bridgestone?

  3. I have the 18″ tires on a 2016 Highlander, replaced original tires at 46,000 miles, now almost 60,000 miles on these. This tire/car combo is by far the best I have ever owned. I live in Iowa in the country at the top of a very steep hill
    and no problems with the snow we had, handling is very responsive, no trouble with ice or water. By the way I am an enthusiastic driver (age 77).

  4. I have a Bridgestone 285/45 R22 alenza, after 30 k miles on my 2017 GMC YUKON, I had a Blow out driving 65 mph , called GMC service ( keep in mind I did purchase an extra wheel package insurance ) after they gaged the tire I had 4/32 of thread on my tires , all the service on the truck is on time an up to date , the answer from service rep was , there is nothing we can do you existing warranty doesn’t cover , your wheels and tires warranty doesn’t cover the repair , go deal with Bridgestone direct, so I did , Bridgestone response was GMC Oem tires are not the same as the aftermarket same make and model tire (basically a deluded version of the original) there is cracks on my other 3 tires , the thread wore out so quickly , it is unsafe to drive my suv, the tire blew up when I had my family in the car , I am really disappointed with GMC, the dealer that sold me truck and the deception and empty promises at point of sale.

    First Yukon purchase and the last , for all the consumers info GMC oem tires are only good for about 25 to 30 k miles and then drive them at your own risk. Buyer be aware .

    1. Sorry to hear that Sam. My 2005 Silverado with 198K miles has gone thru Destination A/T, Dueler A/T Revo 2 and now Yokohama Geolander. Guess I’m averaging 65K miles per set. Odd about your cracks. None of my tires have had them, so not sure about why GM OEM tires will only last 30K miles.

      1. Thank you for sharing your experience! Customer reviews are always important for us to guide our other site visitors in the best way possible.

  5. Bought them for my 2016 Honda Pilot, they seem to be tough in all weather conditions but between 38 and 49 mph they get very noisy with a slight vibration. So I had firestone rebalance them twice still the same thing so i took the truck to the dealership and they couldn’t find anything wrong except maybe the tires, so now I am thinking about trading them for the firestone destination le 2

  6. I have 27K miles on my set installed on a RAM 1500 Crew Cab. they were great until about 2K miles ago. then they started chopping and getting very noisy… Looking to replace them already. Not a good tire for the RAM 1500…

  7. Yes, it is very quiet. I have them on a Chevy Traverse and have run them 30k already and tires seem almost new. I am going to put them on a GMC Sierra 4×4 soon

    1. I have 27K miles on my set installed on a RAM 1500 Crew Cab. they were great until about 2K miles ago. then they started chopping and getting very noisy… Looking to replace them already. Not a good tire for the RAM 1500…

  8. Looking for tires for Honda Ridgeline. Now using Michelin defender, great treadwear but very noisy. Used 99 % city, no heavy loads. Is this a quiet tire?
