Has anyone tried the Bridgestone Dueler tires that come OEM on the Chevy Equinox on their E?

The 16" size is 235/65R16 which should fit on the standard E 6.5" wheel and maintain the same diameter. The tires look noticeably wider on the 6.5" Equinox wheels.

An option would be to find some Acura MDX 17" x 6.5 take-off wheels on eBay and run the 17" Bridgestones that come as an option on the Equinox. The 17" size is 235/60R17, which should also maintain the same overall diameter as the stock 215/70R16 Goodyears.

Just wondering about the performance and tread wear on the Bridgestone tires?

Thanks,

There are a number of Dueler models (12 on Tirerack's listing). The ones that come stock on the CRV (H/T D???) seem to have as a poor wear reputation our Wrangler HPs. On the other hand the Dueler Revo's have an unrivaled reputation on this forum.
