    work in the oil field, gravel roads, popped might be an exaggeration, I had 3 flats with a total of 6 miles of gravel roads on the tires, They kinda might've just went flat. The 4 ply tires just don't seem to be worth a darn on much other than pavement. Wish I could've used them for their life expectancy. 10 ply tires don't help mileage or ride much, but they do add a sense of security on unpaved roads. Have you looked at the spares? they're kind of funny

    Nobody should be knocking the stock tires for snow/ice performance. There is no such thing as an all season tire............if one of those seasons includes snow and ice. Say what you want, but winter tires are a must. The life you save just might be someone you love..

    I also went with the SRA tires for replacements. I was in a bind financially - (bought a house in March, needed tires in May, first kid was born in July. - nuff said?) and they were the best bang for the buck.

    Wow. And here I thought I was struggling with buying a truck in July and having twins in December. What did you end up paying for the new set of SRAs?

    +1 on the Michelin Defenders as I replaced OEM with these, smooth as silk, what a great tire!

    I'm up to almost 75,000 miles on the factory tires. Had one flat from a puncture. Otherwise, they're okay. They're starting to lose grip as the tread is mostly gone now. My neighbor who owns a rim store says that he has tons of take-offs with very few miles and he will let me have a set mounted and balanced for $400. At this point, I'm in full "experimentation mode" just trying to see how far I can go before replacing them.

    That's a great value. Not for me though. I gave up when a small piece of broken beer bottle on the road tore one up. I've been running Cooper AT3's since. 50k or a little more miles per set and they do pretty well.

    Yes I agree on the OEM tires once they get worn over 50% they seem very susceptible to puncture
