$255 each but that's from the guy we get our truck tyres from, you could probebly get them cheaper from a Bridgestone dealer but I look after the people who look after me & they always go out of their way if 1 of the trucks comes in with a tyre problem as down time costs us money.

Hi Bob, D693's also have Donut technology.

I have been very happy with the D693's.
The main reason I got them was that they were about $20/tyre cheaper than all other brands (from Bridgestone Tyre centre).
I will be looking for another set soon - have done 60 000kms - I would like to go up one profile size but Bridgestone dont make the size I need.
A pity - would have liked to try the D694.

Colin, they should make your size in the 694 as it's only a tread design change + the donut technology for what it's worth.

Yes they do make the 'standard' size tyre - but I wanted to go up from 70 to 75 profile - they don't make my size with that profile - might try Toyo's as I had these on another car.

David, I was happy with mine too but Bridgstone don't make them anymore . The new one's are called 694 with a better tread design I think, check out the Bridgestone site if you would like to see the pattern

G'day all. Did a bit of my own research. 693 will remain available for the forseeable future, especially in the aussie made sizes such as 265/75/16 LT. Only some of the imported sizes will be replaced by 694.
Check with your dealer to see whats available. Tim.
