    Die versekering wat die ouens gee op bande wat skade opdoen. Is dit die moeite werd?
    Ek besluit nog tussen Adventure en Grabber AT3. Die een gee hul waarborg by en ander nie.

I would think for the big dunes 1 bar or even 0.8 would be needed. They good tyres, just not as good in the dunes as the BFG KO's I had on before it...they are helluva lot quieter though, and solid as a rock on gravel.

    My rear shocks were on their last legs at the time so I had to low to compensate for that. That is with my V6 Prado and the adventures on.

    Just fitted 4 Good Year All Terrain Adventure 265/65/17 balanced and aligned for R8700

    TWT

    Took them for a 1000km jaunt and must say they feel good.
    Steering is lighter and no noise.
    Haven't put them through any paces yet, but so far I like.

    Fitted yesterday, seem pretty good in the wet with some harsh braking tests, early days but they seem to make the ride better......maybe the extra rubber

    Peoples experiences on road noise and fuel economy with the Adventures?
    Seems excellent in the road noise dept and no ones commented much on the fuel economy side.
    Low road noise(less road resistance?) may also point to better than normal HT tyre fuel economy?

    Have now done 15,000km on my 265/60R18 Adventures. Still as happy as the I fitted them. Good grip wet and dry. Low road noise.

    Done just over 16000kms on mine and also very happy so far. I did find out now that one of them seems out of round, waiting for feedback from the shop where I bought them last year.

    Also still happy with mine. Does well on trails as well. Good grip all around.

    Only place where I have seen BFG doing better was in Mud (which make sense taking the thread design into consideration).

    Should easily reach 80,000 km (doing 5 wheel rotation) with the set.

    Had them on the Hilux and now on the Ranger. Very happy, nothing to complain about!

    Just put in a set of 265/65/17 on my Revo.

    I previously had the duelers on, and the difference so far - 100kms - is small but notable. Little quieter, a bit grippier - will report back when I have out a few more kilos on the clock.

    Paid 8800 +- fitted from Mintys.

    Do these tyres still come with the kevlar print on the sidewall?
    What is your experience/opinion of this tyre in wet highway conditions, and normal use?

    2017 Toyota Fortuner
    Currently on 50 000km with the oem set Dueller D693, still approx. 40% thread left. One tyre worn on the outside due to alignment not done.

    I have a choice between:
    Bridgestone Dueller D693 - R1500 each.
    Goodyear Wrangler Adventure - R1700 each.
    Continental CrossContact - neg. with a guy who pulled a brand new set off his ranger. Hoping for R1700 each.

    95% tar driving, odd weekend of two on gravel now and again. No serious off roading etc..

    Haven't really had an issue with the Dueller, but would prefer the bulkier look. Just not sure if it is worth paying more for the other brands.
    Which would you recommend?
    And which is the best of the above three?

    Thanks in advance

    Crosscontact only for tar roads. Very soft sidewalls. My choice is Goodyears.

    Out of those 3 the GY is definitely the best performer.

    They do have the Kevlar stamp on the wall but the Kevlar is only in the tread on Sa made Adventures. In the US they have it in the sidewall as well and they appear to be quite a pricy tyre over there.

    On the Sa Adventures I wonder if there is at least some Kevlar wrap over on the shoulder of the tyre or if it is only laid strictly beneath the tread lines?

    And apart from strength would the Kevlar make a tyre stiffer or more flexible?

    Dueller d693 are the old ones.
    Replaced by d694 which is now also starting to be faced out and d697.
    D697 seem more aggressive than 694.

    Interesting comment .....

    Iíve driven more than 600 000km on Dueler ATís with no sidewall damage and very few punctures. In the process Iíve driven on every proclaimed road in the whole of Namibia and every track that I could find north of Windhoek. Rocks, sand dunes, riverbeds, marches, you name it, and they handled it faultlessly !

    I also have a photographic record of all the tyres on vehicles that have accompanied me on trips over the years and I just smile when I read the comments on how bad some makes are and how brilliant others are .....

    I think he was referring to the 693 Duelers in particularly, they are not great.

    Over time it has been established that some people have got rather contrary opinions about the same tyres, based on experience.
    Possibly the Duelers OEMs put on new vehicles are different to the ones you buy in SA tyre shops.

    Glad to hear they work for you. Had a fairly new OEM Dueler burst on gravel road many years ago. Never had that happen with another tyre.
    I donít know of any of my acquaintances who like the Duelers, at least those who are aware of what tyres they got.
    Even my preferred tyre salesman at SupaQuick didnít seem to think much of them.
    But you get that with most well known tyres: some love them, some hate them, think BFG for example.
