Bridgestone Dueler HL 400 Reviews (newest first) - Page 1

Given 91% while driving a Subaru Forester 2.0 XT (225/55 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 33 spirited miles
Used on a Subaru Forester XT. I have completed 33,000 trouble free miles on these tyres. I have found them to be extremely good in both wet and dry conditions, on all types of roads from country lanes to long distance motorway trips. Low road noise and exceptional wear. I am replacing them at 35,000 miles just to give extra tread during the winter months as we live on the rural Somerset/Dorset border and plenty of mud and ice in the winter. I have just ordered a set of exactly the same tyres, so obviously I am really impressed.

Tire came standard in the Subaru Forester XT (245hp version) and worn evenly with a tire rotation and balancing every 6-months. Used this tire over 5 years and clocked in almost 25k km with about 20-30% useable tread left. A few spirited driving on hard acceleration and quick stopping. Tire losses grip over tight corners (mountain road), but I see it more of the compact SUV higher centre of gravity. Satisfied overall, but looking to see if another alternative (like Michelin PS4SUV will be better).

These were the factory tires from Subaru and many reviews rate them poorly. I found the tires to be very good in the rain and resistant to hydroplaning. Dry performance deteriorated as the tire wore and when driving and accelerating hard around the same corner to get home they started to slip more. Snow performance was much better than I expected even when half worn, I was able to drive through about 6 inches of wet heavy snow without issue. Braking on icy conditions was acceptable. I found the tire transmitted a lot of road noise into the car and at highway speeds was quite loud. Again as the tire wore it seemed as the tires ride was getting harsher. I sold the car at 33,000 KM and the tyres were at about 40% left I don’t think they are best in class but they are a good all around tire with very good wet and good snow capabilities.
