Bridestone Dueler Vibrtation / Balancing issues

Morning All
I recently fitted a new set of Bridgestone Dueler 693 III to my 2016 2.8 GD-6, but these tyres could just not be balanced properly to give a smooth ride. I took it back to the dealer and they contacted Bridgestone who agreed that they can be replaced with a new set - a week later I was back as the problem persisted. During my 70 000 km service the service advisor informed me that he is aware of issues with these tyres as some are “out of round” and why Toyota switched to Dunlop.... I opted to trade up to Dueler 694’s and paid in the difference with a week later I still experience a shake on the vehicle from 80km/ph - 120km/ph. Anyone experienced same by any chance?

Hi Nico,

had the same tyres on my Fortuner, replaced them after 30 000k`s due to poor handling, road noise and last but not least vibrations. i fitted the General Grabber At3`s, what a change!! It feels like a new car! Handles excellent on and off road and the road noise is minimal.

Thanks for your reply Tjaart. Seems I'm lost with no other option, than to opt for another brand
