Features:

The Bridgestone D684 tyres are 4x4 tyres, part of Bridgestone’s high performance Dueler range. The Bridgestone Tyres Dueler range caters specifically to 4x4 vehicles and comprises three categories of tyres - HT (Highway Terrain), AT (All Terrain) and MT (Mud Terrain) tyres. The Bridgestone D684 tyres belong to the HT category. The tyres are thus best suited for the highways. Another popular tyre in the Dueler HT range is the Bridgestone D687 tyres. The Bridgestone D684 tyres are original equipment for a range of luxury SUVs including the Honda CRV, Suzuki Vitara and the Subaru Forester. It is well known that sedans deliver greater driving comfort and more precise handling than SUVs owing to their lower centre of gravity. According to Bridgestone, the Bridgestone D684 tyres tread pattern is designed in such a manner that it brings sedan like comfort and handling to SUVs. Additionally, the tyres also perform well on parameters of braking responsiveness, wet weather performance, and noise levels.

Handling:  The tyres incorporate a modern tread pattern that improves handling characteristics significantly. The tread profile exhibits rounded casing at the edges to fit over the rims perfectly. This makes the Bridgestone D684 tyres more resistant to distortion when negotiating corners at high speeds, conferring greater stability and superior control over the vehicle.
Braking responsiveness: The tyre shoulder tread blocks are optimised to improve traction and grip. Because of increased traction, the tyres offer exceptional braking responsiveness, producing reduced stopping distances and enhancing safety.
Wet weather performance: The modern tread design also enables superior wet weather performance by efficiently channelling water away from the contact patch. This removes the water from the under tread, reducing the chances of aquaplaning and thus eliminating the risk of skidding on wet roads.
Noise levels: SUVs are normally associated with high decibel tyre noise that can bring on a headache. Not so with the Bridgestone D684 tyres. The tread pattern is optimised to reduce noise levels so that you experience a quiet ride that obviously adds to the overall ride experience.

Had these tyres on a previous car. The grip was excellent nay outstanding but they only lasted 26000 miles. Maybe I drove too hard on the Bridgestones. I changed to Yokohama Geolanders and they lasted longer but they were not quite as grippy. So you have to decide what you want most - grip or longevity.

I also use Bridgestone tyres on my bike which is a Kawasaki ZZR1400 capable of almost 200mph and, as with the car, I have total confidence in them.

Find them noisier on motorways than previous tyres (Goodrich) even thogh they were 'mud & snow' spec. Maybe the difference between old and new tread depths?

Bridgestone tyres have outlasted all other brands than I or family members have used on the CRV
