Drivers of Jeeps, crossovers, pickup trucks, and SUVs need a set of tires like Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3 that can permit them to drive anywhere and carry heavy loads around.

All-terrain tires with all-season capabilities are a preferable choice for most drivers. While they focus on different terrain performances, drivers need the assurance that the tires are safe and improve handling characteristics.

This review describes the specs and technologies used on Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3 tires and their specs when driven on different roads. It also provides some recommendations on the suitability of the tires.

Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3 outperforms 96% of tires in the On-/Off-Road All-Terrain category.

What are the features of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3?

Dueler A/T Revo 3 is Bridgestone’s solution balances highway driving comfort, off-road traction, maximum performance on dry and wet roads, and balanced performance on snow-covered roads.

It is manufactured using a durable, wear-resistant compound that can traverse different terrains. The tires have symmetric tread patterns and reinforced shoulders to enhance traction and stability on highways.

The grooves of the Dueler A/T Revo 3 tires have sufficient voids that enhance the traction levels of the tire when driving over loosely packed roads. Bridgestone has maximized the tire’s defense against hydroplaning by incorporating deep treads, wide grooves, and lateral slots on the shoulders.

In-block sipes provide additional contact surfaces to ease driving over snow, slippery, or slush roads. The tires rely on Traction Claw Technology and the 3D shoulder steps that improve traction on soft surfaces and allow navigation in deep snow.

The Dueler A/T Revo 3 is a strong tire brand that utilizes multiple materials that enhance durability, load capacities, and stability. The tire uses two-ply polyester casings and tensile steel belts to stabilize its treads.

Nylon plies improve the responsiveness of the tires, durability and enhance the stability when driving at high speeds.                                                                            

How long does the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3 tire last?

Bridgestone offers a standard market warranty for its products. The Dueler A/T Revo 3 tires have a limited treadwear warranty lasting five years from the date of purchase or the first 60,000 miles for the metric tire sizes.

LT tire sizes have a limited treadwear warranty of 50,000 miles. Additionally, the company has a uniformity warranty for the first 2/32”. The warranty conditions cater for manufacturing materials defects and poor workmanship for a maximum of 5 years.

Like other tire brands, the Dueler A/T Revo 3 tires have standard tread wear indicators in the form of rubber strips that recess into the grooves.

Although the tread patterns of the Dueler A/T Revo 3 appear aggressive and suited for off-roading, the tires rank lower than other competing brands in the all-terrain category for off-roading.

If the tire is fully inflated, it offers good traction for driving over hard-packed roads, light dirt and gravel surfaces. On rougher terrains, the tires exhibit lower performance. Deflating the tires a bit enhances the capabilities of the tires over the rugged surfaces.

On muddy roads, the Dueler A/T Revo 3 struggles to grip the road surface. While the 2-ply construction aims to improve the quality of rides, the tires become susceptible to puncturing since the only way to enhance its performance for off-roading is by deflating it a little bit.

Drivers require assurance that the tires on their vehicles are safe for driving on wet roads. The presence of water on the road affects the handling of vehicles and increases the probability of hydroplaning. Dueler A/T Revo 3 ranks among some of the best all-terrain tires for driving on wet roads. It uses wide grooves and slots on the shoulders of the tire to evacuate surface run-offs. 

In terms of wet traction, the symmetric tread patterns are perfect for maintaining good footprints to ensure the vehicle maintains traction with the road. Braking distances are modest but not the best in the all-terrain tire category.

The Dueler A/T Revo 3 is a highly responsive tire that reacts promptly to driving controls. The traction on dry tarmac is remarkable with superb handling characteristics.

Drivers have an easy time moving around corners and the tires boast remarkable highway stability. Although the treads are made from wear-resistant rubber compounds, they have low rolling resistance. The lower the rolling resistance, the better the fuel economy.

One area that the Dueler A/T Revo 3 underperforms is the braking distance. In comparison with highway, specialized tires, and similar all-terrain tires, the braking distance is longer.

On the highway, the tires have a smooth and comfortable ride. The 2-ply tire construction ensures that the tires absorb most surface vibrations and shocks from road irregularities. The only time the discomfort is transferred onto the vehicle’s cabin is when driving over wide potholes.

In terms of noise controls, the Dueler A/T Revo 3 tires have manageable noise levels even at high driving speeds.

The Dueler A/T Revo 3 tires are not specialized for winter conditions. The tires lack the three mountain snowflake label. However, test runs for these tires on snow are remarkable. The tires offer good traction for easy handling on light snow.

The voided grooves increase the tire’s biting edges and can easily cut through the slushy roads. Braking distance is long but reasonable, considering these tires are not designed for winter conditions. In deep snow and ice, the tires perform poorly.

Are Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3 good?

The Bridgestone Dueler A/T tires balance most qualities for driving on the highway and off-roading. However, the tires are not the best in any category. They perform well on the highway and post mixed results when it comes to off-roading. It is a good choice for drivers who spend more time on the highways.
