Had Continentals on my 2010 F-250 from factory. Rough riding and horrible in snow and mud. Just switched them out to Cooper AT/3. Huge difference, Cooper's are great in snow also

I've NEVER seen a vehicle (car, truck, RV, or boat trailer) come with great tires from the factory. Once in a great while, the factory tires are good. But mostly fair-to-poor sorry excuses for tires.

Continental does make some good tires, as did Firestone before and after the Ford debacle. But the OEM tires are almost guaranteed to be worthless.

just my experiences, yours may differ

My vettes came with great tires; my Hummer H3 came with great tires. But I'll agree most don't and those two I mentioned are sort of unique.
My last two trucks came with crappy tires. However, after some complaining to GM, they replaced the tires on my 2015 Silverado, FOR FREE. They replaced the Goodyear SRAs with the Goodyear Adventure AT Kevlars.

If you kept the failed tire you should turn it in to NHTSA for testing. IMO it wasn't a normal failure.
