“The Bridgestone Dueler H/T 685 tire is a great addition to our best-in-class Dueler tire line,” says Erik Seidel, president of consumer replacement tire sales in the U.S. and Canada. “This new tire will combine several original equipment fitments into one go-to tire, allowing our dealers to capture more first and second replacement tire sales in the heavy-duty pickup truck segment.”

Built with heavy-duty steel belts and a two-ply polyester construction, the Bridgestone Dueler H/T 685 will give drivers confidence in heavy-duty applications ranging from towing a boat to moving loads. The tire features a new tread-to-road contact footprint that allows it to adapt to the load and promotes even tread wear.

The Dueler H/T 685 tire from Bridgestone is optimized to retain traction in snow. The tire’s tread pattern also features wide grooves to channel water away from the tire and help resist hydroplaning in wet conditions.

The tire is available in 17 sizes. It's backed by a 50,000 mile limited treadwear warranty.

Here's a rundown of the sizes available:

LT215/85R16
