Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400
Initial Review: 23,000 miles on tires
April 16, 2013

Contrary to many reviews I would rate this tire as above average for OEM options. I have 23,000 miles on the tires and 10/32 of tread remaining. I did have my tires siped at a local tire store and that has provided good to great winter service during a very snowy season in Northern Michigan. The noise level appears typical for a 'v' rated tire and this carries over to the ride quality. I have not found a 'V' rated tire that has a very smooth or quiet ride quality. The trade off is a very positive handling characteristic. I would consider this tire for a replacement option if the cost were about $100 less each. My choice for a replacement will give serious consideration to an 'H' rated option to smooth out at quiet the ride quality.
