Advice on Bridgestone Dueller A/T Revo 2

Postby sparky1202 [OP] » Oct 30 2011, 10:48pm

I do a lot of highway driving. 56 miles one way to work. Every now and again I need to go into the woods or get into a little mud. Nothing too crazy though. Is this a good quality tire, or would I be waisting my money. I have read a ton of reviews and everyone says this tire is great. A few folks said that the tread life wasnt that great, but I am not worried about that since it comes with a 50,000 Manf. warranty. Anyway, some feedback would be much appreciated!

Thanks.

I have had the Bridgestones on my 2500HD. They are awsome traction and quiet, but I could not get more than 25,000 miles out of a set ( 2 sets) I also ran the goodyear ats and only got 35,000 miles out of a set. I now am running the Cooper Discoverer AT3's because I got 60,000 miles out of my last set!! The 2nd set has 21,000 miles on them and have lots of deep tread left! They are very quiet on the highway and the rain and ice/snow traction is awsome!! Google them, I have not found any negative feedback anywhere!! They are 60,000 mile warranty and better price also!

I have not heard to many good things about Bridgestones(Firestones makes them)My Z-71 with them and did not like them, belts separated.
You may find this hard to believe but my 96 4X4 Suburban and my 02 Z-71both run on GoodYear Tracker -2's I get them at Walmart and get the lifetime rotation/balance and road hazard, I bring them up about every 6-7K miles for Rotation and Spin Balance, the best way to get the max miles esp truck tires is to keep them in good shape(proper inflation) rotate them and keep them balanced, last set of Trackers on the 96 Burb I got about 60K miles and that is a 6500lb 4X4 SUV. I even bought my daughters tires for her little caviler up there, no one else can touch there prices.

Ok, I am going to ck out the cooper at 3's, and I have the Goodyears on there right now, and they have about 30000 on them and they are weather cracking. So I dont want them anymore, plus the road noise now is terrible. I appreciate the feedback on the bridgestones too. THanks again everyone for the feedback.

Ditto on the Coopers. I just had them installed about a month ago to replace the Goodyear ST's that my truck came with. I can hardly tell any difference in ride comfort or noise, but wet traction is great. Just waiting for the snow...(not really...)

Revo II's have been discussed quite a bit. I LOVE those tires. See the links below, some with pics:

Thanks for all of the info yall! I really appreciate it.

EKinMN...... thanks for the links, that helped me out tremendously! I have always had BFG All-terrains, and I do mostly highway now, and I heard that Bridgestone was a top of the line tire. So I want a quality tire, and I was really interested in it. THanks again bud, cant wait to put these tires on my truck!

I put the Bridgestone Revo II's (P285/70-17) on my wifes Tahoe and she likes them. She hasn't been in any mudholes, but our driveway can get pretty sloppy after a hard rain and they get good traction. She's probably got 8000 miles on them so far and they still look brand new. They don't seem to catch rocks in the tread as bad as a lot of AT tires either. Good tires for a 1/2 ton truck or suv to me.

You are welcome.
Like DRK4X4 stated, they don't hold rocks. My OEM Bridgestones hold rocks, only to eject them at 70 MPH, and ding the paint, or rattle around and scare the crap out of you as the rocks ping the wheel wells. Also, there is no better snow tire than the Revo II.
let us know when ya get them installed!
