Dueler H/T 685 tire features innovative tread-to-road contact patch for even tread wear

Bridgestone Americas, Inc. (Bridgestone) today announced the company is expanding its Dueler tire line to include an all-new, heavy-duty offering for pickup trucks. Specially engineered for towing and hauling heavy loads, the Bridgestone Dueler H/T 685 tire delivers long-lasting, premium performance across every season.

“The Bridgestone Dueler H/T 685 tire is a great addition to our best-in-class Dueler tire line,” said Erik Seidel, president, consumer replacement tire sales, 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 is a tough tire that will give drivers complete confidence in a number of heavy-duty applications ranging from towing a boat to moving loads on busy weekends. The tire features an innovative, new tread-to-road contact footprint that allows it to adapt to the load and promotes even tread wear.

Made to last season after season and year after year, 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.

Backed by a 50,000 mile limited treadwear warranty*, the Bridgestone Dueler H/T 685 tire is now available in 17 sizes and fits 96 percent of the pickup trucks on the road today.
