These tires do some things very well. They are about a 45000 mile tire on average. But their handling characteristics will transform most SUV's and trucks into handling like a very well mannered car. For me that is what sets this tire apart from the others in this class. It possesses great handling, stopping, on both wet or dry roads, even in snow, these tires will not disappoint. That said, there is one area these tires do not excel. The rolling resistance is high so be prepared to lose a mile or two a gallon on your fuel mileage. Other tires in this class will return better fuel mileage to you but will not give you the handling or performance of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza.
