Just tried to buy a replacement for my cruiser, found a split in the sidewall and only 20k on it. Apparently no duellers in the country for the 285/60 18's and customer service can't tell me when it is safe to leave home.....not happy and I've only got 11 Bridgestones on my truck and van....

Dublediff, That is not good after only 20k. I have had two sets of Duelers all round and am currently running Coopers but they are getting thin so I am looking at the returning to the Dueler 697 or even the M/T 674. The grip on the duelers is hard to beat for all round dirt, sand and terrain.
Any idea what caused the sidewall split?
Regards Will

It wasn't off road, probably picked up something from a truck on the highway.....best tyres won't beat that. Love the duellers otherwise.

Just got a replacement through my local Bridgestone dealer in Hoppers Crossing, got one transferred interstate. Bloody customer service pays lip service only. The local,blokes on the shop front got it done, thanks.

Good to hear you got it sorted. Hubby works for Bridgestone, could have had him check on availability for you otherwise
