Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza
Initial Review: 27,000 miles on tires
June 07, 2012

I bought these tires about 5 years ago and the vehicle sat mostly in my driveway since I had a company vehicle. I still managed to put some miles on them but the biggest problem I have is the UV cracking. That sad part is that there is TONS of tread left on these tires. Not even half worn. I have rotated a few times but more importantly kept the air pressure around 32PSI.

I changed garages for repairs but might just go back to my old garage for the Bridgestone Dueler.
I was looking at the Goodyear Fortera but found how bad the tire wear is. My son has the Fortera on his newer KIA minivan and he said those tires lasted about 3 years max. However he said they were agreat tire for traction fuel and ride. He wants to get the Duelers but they don't come in his size.

I suppose I should go back to tried, tested and trued If it ain't broke don't fix it.
Maybe second set of Duelers should be my choice.
To be anal I always thought about putting those trailer tire covers on to keep the UV away from the rubber.... Nah, just a thought :)
