BFNAT Adds New LT/SUV Tire
(Akron/Tire Review) Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire has launched the Bridgestone Dueler A/T 695, a new all-terrain light truck/SUV line. Replacing the Dueler A/T 693, the tyre features Bridgestone’s UNI-T technology; a “two-in-one tread block design” for on-road stability and handling; silica-based tread compound for wet traction; open shoulder slots for water evacuation; and interlocking tread notches and off-shoulder tread blocks for mud and snow traction.
The tyre – R-, S- and T-rated – will be available in 21 sizes covering 15- to 20-inch wheel diameters, and has a 460 AB UTQG rating. The tyre also comes with a 50,000-mile limited treadwear warranty. All sizes carry the Bridgestone Platinum Pact 3-Year Replacement Limited Warranty and Buy & Try, 30-Day Guarantee.
