Default Is it just me...

Am I the only one out there that thinks that if you are going to call a truck an "Outdoorsman" that Dodge should be selling it with at least a decent all terrain tire? I cant begin to tell you how frustrating it is to drop tires just driving on a gravel road. I finally had to suck it up and buy some real tires.

Sorry for the rant.

Mine came with the same tires, pro series so there also load range e. I was kinda impressed. They cost a pretty penny. I personally wouldn't buy them again as i'm getting pretty bad milage out of them but they're deff not bad for stock tires. could have came with goodyear wranglers. Would bfg or nittos be better yes but they would be noisy and half the people who buy the outdoorsman would then complain they have highway noise.

If you got the 20" option then you lose the LT tires. Kind of a drag. Very expensive for 20" LT tires.

Huh....??? Mine came with Goodyear Wrangler ATS's Seemed to be a good tire to me so before buying the truck I did some research (so I could negotiate a better set if necessary) and found really good reviews. I've had the truck going on two years now and I've yet to have a problem. Good tires in my opinion.

My 4x4 Outdoorsman came with 17" GoodYear Prograde tires. Yes they are not off road mudders, but are still very aggressive for a factory stock tire.
