Bridgestone 3rd Gen RFT Test

Info and test result on Bridgstone new 3rd gen RFT. Good read.


I have (4) Bridgestone RFT Dueler H/L 400 Highway Allseason M+S
255/50R19 107 H
32psi fronts
35psi rears2009 X5 35d sport option. K&N air filter installed. 14k miles on car with plenty of tire tread remaining.

I believe they are the 2nd gen RFT tires.

Plan to try the new 3rd gen tire when current tires need replacement.

Note: Just returned from a 2450 mile trip Fla - WDC included driving through Va & NC Mts. Averaged 28.5 mpg. Most all diesel was rated at 40 cetane. Only one BP station had 45 cetane fuel.

I use FPPF 8+ cetane improver to increase cetane 4 points.
Car runs great at 3600 ft alt.

Can't report any problems - Yet!
