Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
January 15, 2014

Had these tires for 25,000 So. Florida miles, so hot/humid sub-tropics. Moved to NYC metro area and made huge mistake replacing Dueler Alenzas with Toyos (at Volvo dealer suggestion) but they rolled so badly when make sharp lateral movements that the accident or rollover potential was quite real. Quickly replaced with Duelers and have now driven in snow. WOW!! Don't know what I was thinking---these tires are as awesome in the cold as in extreme heat. Perfectly suited for a big heavy boring Volvo XC90. Only issue is wear: they only lasted 25K in FL with no frequent enough rotations. I expect more tread life up north. Would put no other tire on this car, these drive so quietly and comfortably.
