Bridgestone Firestone adds to Dueler line

Oct. 1, 2007

Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC (BFNT) has added to its Dueler line with the Bridgestone Dueler A/T 695.

This all-terrain tire for pickup trucks and SUVs is constructed with the company's UNI-T technology and is designed to tackle tough road conditions while still offering a smooth on-highway ride, the company says.

The Bridgestone Dueler A/T 695 features a two-in-one tread block design that contributes to on-road stability and handling, a silica-based tread compound to aid wet traction, open shoulder slots to promote water evacuation and interlocking tread notches and aggressive off-shoulder tread blocks to add extra bite in the snow and mud.

The tire’s noise-optimized tread pattern provides a peaceful, gentle ride without sacrificing traction or tread wear, the company says.

The Bridgestone Dueler A/T 695 is now available in 21 15- to 20-inch sizes (R, S and T speed rated). It replaces the Bridgestone Dueler A/T 693.
