After my friend and I had read all the negative comments about driving
a car in rain with the Duler tires by Bridgestone I was a nervous
wreck about driving it in rain. I was about ready to go out and spend
600.00 on the other ones that a tire place had told me about.
We had our first rainstorm in almost 2 weeks. It rained heavy, and
there was water flowing on the roads in some areas with fairly deep
puddles. I'm glad to report that all the reports on Tirerack.com of
the Duelers causing a car to have problems steering, stopping, braking
and hydroplaning were all wrong! Well now I feel better.
So far the Dueler tires on my CRV is excellent on dry roads, dirt/
grass/gravel trails and rain. I'm not wishing for snow, but that will
be next for me to test.
The same tire is used on BWM X5, Mercedes, Lexus 350 and Audi Q7, so
I'm sure Honda wouldn't put a tire that would cause problems on their
cars knowing they as well as many higher end cars and SUV's have a
reputation to uphold.
So does anyone know why some other posters had such a vast different
way of measuring the Dueler tires performance?
Thanks so much,
