Should I get original Bridgestone Dueler tyres for my Honda CR-V?

I need to replace the front tyres on my 2006 Honda CR-V. Do I replace them with the original Bridgestone Dueler 215/65 R16 98H or go for another premium brand? I do not drive off road and cover 12,000 miles a year.

We recommend always replacing them with the original equipment tyres and these will be best suited to the car, regardless of what roads you drive on. You could get a different make, but anything cheaper is likely to be inferior to Bridgestone and the experts say you should always have four matching tyres.
