Fortuner 17" tyres

Hi, I have a 2017 2.8 gd 6 4x4 fortuner with the OEM Bridestone Dueler 693 tyres 265/65/17. Worst tyres ever :fie: . Only gave 35 000 km an make a terrible squeaky noise when turning at low speeds.
Anyway time fro replacement, which tyre would give me the most mileage for rand? I do mostly in town runs with once weekly highway journey and probably once in 2 months a long trip.
I was advised Hankook would give me close to 80 000 km and ocst around R 2 000 ea. Any better options?
General, Yokos, Goodyear?
Thansk in advance

Mileage you get out of your tyres are very depended on your application, drive style and maintenance,
I know guys that get 100k from BF's and other that does not get 30k

Just for info, I recently replaced Goodyear Wrangler A/T tyres on my Tuna after close to 80 000km. I replaced them with Goodyear Efficientgrip tyres and absolutey love them I am amazed at their grip and handling especially in the wet. Its feels like you are on train tracks !!
My situation is very similar to yours, the occasional Long highway trip, but mainly town driving, school runs etc...
However I agree with AmadaXtreme, Its how you use them and take care of them that is the true test of durability. Keep pressures correct fortnightly, rotate every 2000km, dont drive like a lunatic etc etc...

Many thanks for your response. I eventually decided to stick my Bridstone Dueler 693 17". The reason being that my spare is brand new. So I have purchased 3x Duelers, make use of the spare and place the best of the four as my spare. Seemed such a waste not to make use of my spare.
Any comments will be appreciated.

I also have a 2017 GD 6 4x4 Auto but my tyre size is 265x60x18. My vehicle was delivered to me in February 2017. It seems that Toyota changed the size somewhere in 2017. Because I'm struggling to get 265x65x18 BF's, I'm now wondering if I should not also change my rim to 17". I'm looking for a bit higher tyre hence the 65 and not 60 hight. Any advice will be appreciated.
